On August 24th – 26th, 2018 Letchworth State Park will host the Stone Tool Craftsman Show.

The show is opened from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM (Friday & Saturday) & 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM (Sunday), and is held at the Highbanks Recreation Area near the Mt. Morris Entrance to the park.

Modern master stone tool craftsmen (flintknappers) engage in the ancient art of making tools from stone including arrowheads and spear points. Demonstrations will be scheduled throughout the event as well as stone and other supplies being available for purchase.

Other activities include the Eastern Seaboard Atl-Atl Competition. The Atl Atl (spear throwing stick) event will educate the public on how ancient people hunted centuries ago. There will also be a Mountain Man/Civil War Era encampment with re-enactors, traders and black-powder firearm demonstrations.

Admission to the show is included with the $10.00 per vehicle park entrance fee.
