This year's 2022 show marks the 39th consecutive year for the Arkansas Pen Show, presented each year by the Arkansas Pen Club. There were years early on when the show was a modest gathering at Vanness Pen Store, but it's been publicized and held every year since 1983. Of course, we've grown tremendously since those early days, and our event now brings attendees and exhibitors from all over the country.

Our sponsors this year include Grifos Pens of Italy, Newton Pens, Kenro Industries, Vanness Pen Shop, ART Outfitters, and Pen World Magazine.

Whether you are interested in vintage or modern pens, inks, writing, fine writing papers and notepads, or calligraphy, the 2022 Arkansas Pen Show should have something of interest for you.

The Arkansas Pen Club meets at 6:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month at Corky's BBQ restaurant on Bowman in Little Rock. Anyone with an interest in fountain pens is invited.
