How will Cherokee affect you?

Make a special event the centerpiece of your vacation in Cherokee.

Events, festivals, fairs, and more abound in Cherokee throughout the spring, summer and fall, all of them as diverse as they are delightful. They’re a great way to have a great time, and often they provide an easy opportunity to absorb some intriguing Cherokee culture through dance, food, craftmaking, and more. But some Cherokee events are simply a fun way to spend time with your friends and family. Take a quick tour of the event lineup below, pick a few, and add them to your itinerary.

Cherokee Gourd Artists Gathering

Friday, May 29 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Cherokee Gourd Artists Gathering

Come see gourds in a whole new light. The Cherokee Gourd Artists Gathering is an annual event that began in 2003. Gourd artists from across the United States and Canada meet for four days to exchange ideas, and to take classes from acclaimed teachers in various techniques such as wood burning, carving, painting, and sculpting that turn the ordinary gourds into beautiful art objects. Classes range from the beginner level to the advanced starting Thursday afternoon through Sunday morning. Activities include silent auctions, live auction, and raffles throughout the event. The Gourd Artists Gathering is open to the public without a gate fee. Classes do have a reasonable fee, but sign up early because they fill fast.
