Introducing The Host:  GOT KNOCKERS?

Got Knockers is the creative force behind the Central Pa Bigfoot & Cryptid Festival.

Got knockers

founded in 2022

Got Knockers was born on a Bigfoot investigation in the Allegheny National Forest in 2021.  A fellow bigfooter made some pretty cool wood knockers out of a couple of branches.  A Tshirt was made as a joke about his cool wooden knockers.  And that joke Tshirt became the brand you see today.  Got Knockers is not only a brand, but teaches young kids about Bigfoot and other cryptids as well as hosts research investigations in various areas around the world.

Sharon Buck

I grew up in several rural areas of Pennsylvania. Spending my days out in the forests wandering and exploring , mostly all on my own, even as a small child. Up until 2005, I lived in several other states, including Montana, which I really enjoyed. I came home to Pennsylvania, and my love of the thick forested areas here pulled me back into the woods on a near daily basis. As a result a family of Bigfoot has befriended me. I am looking forward to sharing my story with all of you.
