Written by 

The Cherokee Indian Fair will mark its 100th year Oct. 2-6 with a five-day celebration of great music and traditional games, dancing, music, crafts, displays and food.

Music acts include Sawyer Brown on Oct. 4 at 9:30 p.m. and Lonestar on Oct. 6 at 8:30 p.m.

Each day is themed to an important part of the Cherokee culture. Parade day, Tuesday, kicks off with the Chief’s Challenge run through downtown Cherokee at 2 p.m. Wednesday is Children’s Day, with special activities and attractions. Thursday, the Cherokee Indian Fair honors the elders with a special meal. Friday, Cherokee salutes the armed forces. This year, the Cherokee Indian Fair is honored to host the traveling Vietnam War Memorial Wall, which will be on exhibit at the Cherokee Expo Center. Saturday’s Community Day completes the celebration.

The fair also includes a carnival featuring games and high-tech rides. Admission to the fair is $10 and tickets are available in advance at www.visitcherokeenc.com.
