World Atlatl Day


Join Pueblo Grande Museum in celebrating World Atlatl Day as local primitive skills group S.A.L.T. will put on an atlatl demonstration and accuracy contest.

The atlatl is a weapon predating the bow and arrow. Used worldwide for thousands of years, it proved an effective weapon. A stick with a hook on the end to hold the dart/spear, it increased the distance, speed and force of the dart/spear.  Everyone is welcome, no experience needed! The museum will be offering free admission and visitors can try throwing darts using the atlatl and even join in the accuracy competition.

This event and the museum are free and open to the public.  Pre-registration is not required and no experience is needed to join the atlatl competition.
