Life at Chimney Rock — Festival of Crafts and Culture

Chimney Rock Interpretive Association is proud to present this year’s Life at Chimney Rock Festival, which will celebrate art heritage on Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

A major festival attraction is an invitational Indian Market featuring a variety of quality Native American talent.

Family activities and interactive demonstrations of the skills of the ancients will include pottery making, sand painting, pine cone toss, yucca pounding, corn grinding, and throwing the hunting spear, known as an ”atlatl.”

The entry to the festival and Indian Market is free.

Guided tours of the site, including the Chacoan Great House Pueblo atop the mesa, will be available at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m., 1 and 2 p.m. and cost $10 for adults; $5 for ages 5-11 (free for ages under 5).

Life at Chimney Rock is sponsored by Chimney Rock Interpretive Association, in partnership with the USDA Forest Service, and the San Juan National Forest. Visit the website for more information on the entire 2011 season at www.chimneyrockco.org.
