Haunted Island

Join us for two days of spooktacular fun! Cherokee myths will come alive on a Haunted Trail where you might have the misfortune of encountering centuries-old legends like Spearfinger, Uktena, booger dancers, and others. You can dance to the beats from our undead DJ, play dreadful carnival games for prizes, and participate in the Zombie Run!

Special Guest Star Brad Byers will be performing his jaw-dropping and death-defying stunts three times a night. Mr. Byers has performed on America's Got Talent and his recorded performances can be seen at Ripley's Believe It or Not museums around the world.

Cherokee Bonfire

Friday, October 27 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Amazing tales as told by the Cherokee storytellers themselves.

Imagine you’re gathered around a roaring bonfire, the occasional spark shooting high into the night sky, as a strong but gentle voice begins a story you’ve never heard. As the drama builds, you’re nearly breathless, your own heartbeat matching the occasional beat of the hand drum the storyteller uses. Drawing from a rich oral tradition dating back millennia, the Cherokee Bonfire series runs throughout the tourism season, and is an enchanting way to interact with the rich details of the Cherokee people and their stories. Get your room reserved in Cherokee, grab a blanket and someone close to you, and enjoy a cultural experience only Cherokee can offer.

The Bonfire stories crackles from 7:00–9:00 p.m. on the following dates at Oconaluftee Islands Park, on Tsali Blvd.:

Fridays & Saturdays, May 26–October 28, 2017.

Expanded schedule for the 4th of July celebrations from June 26–July 1, 2017.

There will be no Bonfire Series events in September.
