The Hill Country Heritage Expo is a massive cultural event beginning with a tipi talk and historical dance on Friday evening and a jam-packed Saturday. You will visit pockets of time from prehistoric weaponry through the Great Depression! Visit the Armaments section where you will see Atlatl demonstrations, Flint Knapping, Cannon fire and Musket Fire! Stroll on over to our Pioneer Town and learn the origins of tea, how to make rope, milk a cow, and spin. Stop in and chat with the Lipan-Apache Tribe, the Buffalo Soldiers, Civilian Conservation Corps, or learn about the Longhorn Cavern State Park and the National Wildlife Refuge system! Finally, don’t forget about our special performances by the Comanche Nation Youth Dancers, Dutch Oven Demonstrations, and our historical dance by Sisters of the Heart. Finish your Awesome weekend by picking your favorite chili in the Chili Cook-off Competition and buying a Hill Country Heritage Expo commemorative patch!
