2017 Fort Knapadonia Knap-in Announcement
Joe Higgins and the Knapadonia Gang will again host the annual Fort Knapadonia Knap-In in August. As in the past there will be a full schedule of How-to workshops – archery, 2-inch Goat, 10-speed, bowmaking, atlatls, darts, arrows, basket making, making arrowheads and blade, etc.
There will be water available, electricity, Port-a-Potties, and lots of room for camping and RVing. Families are welcomed and encouraged to attend! Close by Oak Harbor offers plenty of garage sales and stores for shopping.
In addition to the usual great knappers knapping, plentiful rock and great weather, Whidbey Island is also a great place for families interested in sightseeing and experiencing other tourist activities.
