The Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation, Inc. is pleased to announce the return of the Plano
Archaeology Fair. This family-friendly even is located in scenic Haggard Park in Historic Downtown Plano.
Our past Archaeology Fairs have attracted 300 to 500 visitors. Activities will include corn grinding, rock
painting, petroglyphs, storytelling, corn husk dolls, flint knapping demo, excavation activities and more!
The 15th Plano Archaeology Fair includes numerous activities and provides an opportunity for children
to learn about Native American culture and early settlement of Plano. There will be two featured
performances by the Bear Claw Singers, a local group of Native American performers. In keeping with
their traditional values the Bear Claw use their talents to bring together the Native American community
to celebrate their proud heritage through song and dance. The Plano Archaeology Fair provides a look at
both prehistoric and historic archaeology. Children participating in the excavation will learn
archaeological techniques and how archaeologists interpret what they find. Parking is available adjacent
to the park and throughout downtown Plano
