Cherokee Heritage Day

Saturday, April 13 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

One Saturday of every month, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Museum of the Cherokee Indian offers a family-friendly fun day of free cultural activities including traditional dancing, storytelling, cultural arts demonstrations, genealogy workshops, hands-on craft workshops and more. Traditional food is available on-site, weather permitting. The Cherokee Friends offer workshops on traditional dancing and cultural arts demonstrations including wampum belt making, moccasin making, stickball stick making, wood carving, fire making, and more. Hands-on workshops are taught by members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and often include making a clay medallion or a traditional Cherokee pot stamped with wooden paddles carved with designs. Different members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians share stories and flute music. Every month includes activities related to that month’s theme. 

Activities are sponsored by the Museum, the North Carolina Arts Council, and the Cherokee Preservation Foundation. Regular prices apply to food and to admission to Museum exhibits.

Dracula is coming.

Thursday, October 21 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Hide the kids, grab the crucifixes, and wear something with a very high neck. See this hair-raising performance on select evenings throughout October.
 

The Cherokee Historical Association, in partnership with the Havoc Movement Company, is proud to present “Dracula: The Failings of Men,” happening on select evenings throughout the month of October. Based on the terrifying classic by Bram Stoker, this action-horror production will have you grabbing for the garlic cloves and hiding behind your blanket. It’s so frightening, kids under 12 are not recommended!

The tale launches you back in time to London circa 1897, when a ghost ship carrying a dark and ancient evil washes ashore. The only passenger appears to have been a shrouded figure—one with a distinctive taste for blood. Join Ada Van Helsing as she pursues something that’s part-myth, part-legend, and fully evil.

Get your tickets here! Only 199 seats are available per show!
