Since 1993, when Zippo Manufacturing Company and W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company were unified in ownership, the two have shared a commitment to American manufacturing within the community of Bradford, PA. In doing so, both brands are recognized for making some of the finest lighters and knives in the world. To celebrate this achievement, Zippo and Case are pleased to invite you to a day-long Silver Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, July 21 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. onsite the Zippo/Case Museum in Bradford, PA!
The fun begins with an opening appearance by our companies' CEO Mark Paup as part of a Case Generation XX Tour stop event. In honor of this event, we've prepared a super-Limited Edition Zippo/Case Silver Anniversary Knife and Lighter Collectible set, which will be available on a "first come, first sold" basis at the Museum. Get there early to get one! There will also be limited production run event and Museum-exclusive collectibles from both Zippo and Case, along with a Case Generation XX one-of-a-kind knife raffle to benefit the Bradford SPCA.
"Out from the Archives" knives will be given away to lucky onsite attendees. Guided Museum tours will be led by Zippo & Case Historians Shirley Evers and Katie Shonts-Saar.
Incredibly, 2018 marks the Zippo Car's 20th birthday too! Snap a selfie with this fire-hot, four wheeled beauty, and take it for a spin while you "Flame the Main" along downtown Bradford.
Technicians will be repairing Zippo® lighters and giving Case® knives a thorough cleaning and blade re-sharpening.
Attendees can stop by the Street Dreams Car Club Show in the Museum field to check out the impeccably restored vintage automobiles, then visit the Kids & Cancer Benefit Run booth to purchase a raffle ticket for an impressive Harley-Davidson® "Harley of Hope" motorcycle and benefit a great cause.
Contests, prizes, games, music, and more will be among the featured activities offered throughout the day. Food and beverages will also be available from local eateries.
Come celebrate 25 years of one family company, united by two iconic American brands!
