U.S. 66 got its name right here in Springfield, Mo making our beautiful town the Birthplace of Route 66. Every year our wonderful town throws a big celebration and Anvil is happy to be apart of that celebration. This year marks the 9th anniversary of the event, taking place Aug 9-10. For those of you who don't know, our shop is located right off of Route 66 on Park Central Square. Its a fantastic event that celebrates everything Main Street USA has to offer. 

First, you should know that we'll have the doors open. There will be some deals on purchases made in the shop. What will that entail? Well you'll have to come by and see. 

Other things of note.

Obviously we have a lot of fun every year getting to see all the exciting cars and bikes that come to town. Plus, delicious food and good people... Basically its everything you could ask for in a classic American event. We hope to see you there, make sure to come by the shop and say hello!

Many people are suddenly finding themselves at home with a new abundance of time and an uncertainty of what to do with said time. Because of Covid-19 people can't go out and do many of the things they're used to, so it would not surprise me in the least if we have a new generation of makers and craftsman come of this pandemic.
