Sale and display items are restricted to militaria and weapons prior to 1945. Absolutely no flea market, survivalist, or inappropriate material will be permitted. By signing this form you agree to abide by these regulations. We reserve the right to have any materials we deem inappropriate removed from a sale or display table. Reproduction items must be so marked. Any misrepresentation with intent to defraud will result in refusal of space at future York Antique Arms Shows and may result in prosecution. You are responsible for knowing and abiding by all city, state, and federal laws involving the sale or transfer of pre-1945 manufactured handguns and shoulder arms. Black powder or explosives in any form, and modern devices they are used in, are forbidden. There will be ABSOLUTELY NO loaded weapons or live artillery shells allowed in the hall at any time. Please check all arms for loads. ONLY show and security personnel may possess modern weapons in the hall. Violations may result in eviction from the facility and/or prosecution.


Exhibitor badges must be worn at all times during the show. Badges will be provided at the dealer registration table during dealer set-up for all personnel listed on your registration form (provided all fees have been paid.) Any changes after September 12, will result in a $20.00 charge. NO EXCEPTIONS! You are responsible for seeing that any badges issued to you are worn by the person whose name appears on it. BADGES ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE. NO ADMITTANCE TO DEALER SETUP WITHOUT A BADGE. NO EXCEPTIONS.



All dealers and badge-holders are legally responsible for any accident that may occur as a result of mishandling of any items at their table or in their charge. The York Antique Arms Show (Publisher's Press, Inc.), the York Expo Center, and their employees are not responsible for any accidents or thefts. Each table holder is responsible for the security of his/her table.


Any cancellations must be received in our office by September 12, 2021. Any cancellations received after September 12, 2021, will result in forfeiture of all fees paid.


We will not have any empty tables. Unless prior arrangements have been made, any exhibitor who has not registered by 8:00 AM Friday, September 17, 2021 will be assumed absent and their tables revert to the York Antique Arms Show, which will make such disposition of the tables as it sees fit. Sales activity is prohibited from display-only tables. Your tables must be completely set up and uncovered during public show hours. The public pays to see you and/or your exhibit. Please don't let them down by leaving your table unattended or packing up early.

Exhibitors are required to keep their tables completely set-up and open for business until 5:00 pm Saturday, at which time they may begin the process of packing up. Failure to comply with this rule will result in the loss of your table location, and the exhibitor is placed at the end of the waiting list with possible loss of future show tables.



All dealers are responsible for and required to accurately record, report, and pay any applicable Pennsylvania state sales tax. Table holders (sales) must have a Pennsylvania Sales Tax License or a Transient Vendor's License for collecting and remitting the 6% PA sales tax. Applications can easily be obtained online or by writing: Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, 130 North Duke Street, York, PA 17401.


We will provide 24-hour on-site security. Although we provide this protection, we are not responsible for losses of any kind, property damage, theft, or personal injury. We urge you to keep a watchful eye on your table(s) at all times.


Smoking is not permitted in the hall. Please smoke outside the front of the hall. The York Antique Arms Show reserves the right to expel anyone creating a disturbance, or, in the opinion of any staff member or show representative, exhibiting improper or unacceptable behavior. Violation of show rules or regulations may result in expulsion. This is for everyone's protection and enjoyment of the event.

We look forward to having you at our Show!
