Welcome to Wes Knodel Gun & Knife Shows
and the "Original" Rose City Gun Show!

Wes Knodel Gun Shows Inc. brings nearly 2 decades of event marketing experience. Since 1995 our specialty has been producing Quality gun and knife shows primarily in Oregon and Washington.  

The sole mission of our company is to bring like-minded buyers, collectors and sellers together. 

We are committed to leading the pack in aggressively reaching the right customer for the events we produce. Selling at a live show has proven to be the most effective method to achieve success while meeting your customers face to face. Tens of thousands of those customers pay admission every year for the opportunity to view, buy, sell or trade. We pride ourselves on reaching new markets, new niches of collecting, new methods to reach customers, and new ways of doing business. 

After many years of negotiation and litigation we have recently added the "Original" Rose City Gun Shows at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland Oregon. 

The Rose City Gun and Knife Show in Portland, Oregon, is our largest venue normally hosting over 750 (and growing) tables of guns, knives and accessories. Currently it is operating during the months of January, March, May, September and November of each year. 

The second most popular location is Centralia, Washington. We host 150 tables and operate monthly. 

Starting in November, 2011, we will be producing an annual show in Albany Oregon. This is where Wes Knodel started producing Gun and Knife Shows as a volunteer for a local gun club. 

In Southern Oregon we are operating shows at The Medford Armory and Jackson County Fairgrounds in Central Point. Starting in 2012 we will add The Grants Pass Armory to the list of Southern Oregon shows. 

We will add more locations as opportunities arise.
