LIFE AT CHIMNEY ROCK FESTIVAL
This Free Family-Oriented Festival is held at Chimney Rock’s Visitor Center area. Step back in time as volunteers and artisans demonstrate ancient tools and crafts. Visitors may make a pot, throw an atlatl (a type of throwing spear), pound yucca leaves to release their fibers, carve their own petroglyph, grind corn with a mano and metate, watch a volunteer spin dog hair using a drop spindle, see an expert flint knapper create hand tools, and learn how Native Americans make flutes.
