41st Annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair
Cherokee Park is beautiful this time of year, and this weekend it will have a little extra beauty in the form of over 200 artist booths. If you are looking for some unique entertainment for the family April 28th and 29th, then you’ve got from 10am till 6pm all weekend to indulge yourself under the sky, while appreciating some local art and cuisine. This festival is always held the weekend prior to the Kentucky Derby to add to the celebration of the Kentucky Derby Festival.
The Cherokee Triangle Art Fair is a free two-day event that is fun for all ages and open to the public. It is a yearly event held in the historic Cherokee Triangle Neighborhood on Cherokee Parkway between Willow Avenue and Cherokee Road, right next to the General John Breckenridge Castleman statue.
You can just browse the variety of booths, chat with the artists and make original art purchases at your leisure. There will be food booths, so there is no need for a picnic lunch unless you just want to break out the basket. There will also be live music in the Triangle for all to enjoy which will go on till 8pm. The food booths will also stay open on Saturday till the music ends just for your convenience.
If you have smaller children, there is a tent set up just to provide them with activities and entertainment. There will also be a plant booth displaying a variety of herbs and plants, and the Cherokee Triangle Association booth will be offering plenty of items with the community logo proudly displayed. This event is one of the major fundraisers for Louisville’s Cherokee Triangle Association, and all proceeds are returned to the community in various ways, such as the Willow Park summer concerts and maintaining the beautiful landscaping the area is known for.
If you are looking for a peaceful atmosphere this weekend, Cherokee Park is the place to be. Not only is this part of the Derby festivities, but it also helps out one of Louisville’s most beautiful areas.
