It’s over a century old. It’s a cornucopia of sights and sounds—a treat for all your senses. Come out on Come out Tuesday, Oct. 8 through Saturday Oct. 12 to enjoy the 107th Annual Cherokee Indian Fair.

It’s a carnival and an agriculture show. It’s an art show and a game show. There’s food, music, and rides. It’s pure, unfiltered fair entertainment with that unmistakable Cherokee touch: a Ferris wheel, fireworks, and stickball. Guests will find ample amounts of all sorts of authentic Cherokee culture, including archery and blowgun demonstrations, local art, dance, music, and more.

General admission is $10 per person at the gate, Tuesday through Friday.

Children ages 6 and under will be admitted for free. Admission on Saturday is $15.

The headlining act that day will be The Legends of Country, which features Larry Stewart, the lead singer for Restless Heart, Tim Rushlow, the lead singer for Little Texas, and Jeff Cook the fiddle player and guitarist for Alabama.

Enrolled members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and other federally recognized tribes will receive free admission. The fair will be held at the Cherokee Indian Fair Grounds, 545 Tsali Blvd. in Cherokee. For more information, call 800-438-1601.
