47th Annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair

Come rain or shine. While not an official Derby week event, the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair might as well be. Every year, the weekend prior to the Big Day, approximately 220 artists sell their wares, musicians perform and food is plentiful. It’s one of our own rites of spring, all nestled within two blocks. Media runs the gambit from fiber art and ceramics to sculpture and paintings. There’s jewelry, lots of jewelry. Kiddos (and adults) love the hands-on activities in the Children’s Art Tent and the parade led by the Squallis Puppeteers. The juried show is the major fundraiser for the Cherokee Triangle Association, which, in turn, uses it to fund activities in the neighborhood.
