Get crackin’ at the 2019 Pedernales Knap-In on May 17-18 in Johnson City.

Flint knappers from Texas and beyond will gather at the Blanco County Fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday to turn flint, chert, obsidian, agate, jasper, and other rocks into arrowheads, knives, tools, and more, replicating prehistoric stone artifacts.

Visitors are welcome at the annual event, which begins at 9 a.m. both days on the fairgrounds, 619 U.S. 281. Admission and parking are free. Knappers love to share their hobby with others so feel free to ask questions or even try your hand at this ancient art of tool making.

Vendors also will be on site selling handmade points, bows, arrows, primitive-style crafts, art, and jewelry as well as knapping tools and supplies.

For more information, contact Knap-In chairman Ron Fieseler at (830) 708-5020.
