The Cherokee Triangle Art Fair is a juried fair with more than 200 artists’ booths. The outdoor event is in Louisville’s historic Cherokee Triangle neighborhood on tree-lined Cherokee Parkway between Willow Avenue and Cherokee Road adjacent to the Gen. John Breckinridge Castleman statue. Activities begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday with the Children’s Parade, which lines up on Cherokee Road at Longest Avenue.
The Art Fair includes dozens of veteran exhibitors as well as new artists not only from Louisville and Kentucky, but also from out of state. Art Fair patrons can view and purchase original art and often meet and talk with the artists. Fairgoers also enjoy food, drink, entertainment and music. On Saturday evening, music and food service will continue until 8 p.m. Then, it’s time to rest up for Sunday’s activities.
The annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair is the major fundraiser for Louisville’s Cherokee Triangle Association, and the event’s proceeds are returned to the community and neighborhood in numerous ways. Annually, proceeds from the fair, along with other revenue sources, help fund events such as the annual free summer concerts in Willow Park.
There’s a popular children’s activities area with a variety of fun events. Other attractions of the fair include the plant booth with a lush variety of plants and herbs, and there’s a wide variety of festive food and drink available at numerous booths.
