Spend an evening with the Cherokee people by a roaring fire on the bank of the Oconaluftee River in downtown Cherokee for a unique and entertaining experience. The bonfires run from 7 to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays starting this week, and will also be held on Thursdays starting in June.

Listen as Cherokee storytellers in period dress from the 17th century spin tales of days gone by, myths and mysteries passed down through the ages and talk of the history. Learn Cherokee survival skills and experience the dance. Marshmallows for roasting are provided.
