art-fair-4The fair starts at 10 a.m. both days, with vendor booths open until 6 p.m. On Saturday a street party kicks off at 6 p.m., with live music, plenty of beer and wine, and brats.

The traditional fair is a juried art fair, and 200 artist booths are on tap for this year, featuring works in a huge variety of media, from jewelry to clay to clothing to glass to canvas — and a whole lot more.

Bands this year on Saturday include No Tools Loaned, 1 p.m., and Stray Cat Blues Band, 4 p.m.; on Sunday, it’s Appalatin at 1 p.m., and Paloverdi at 3:30.

Cherokee Triangle Art Fair takes place on Cherokee Parkway between Willow Avenue and Cherokee Road adjacent to the Gen. John Breckinridge Castleman statue. Proceeds benefit the Cherokee Triangle Association. Admission is free, and pets are not allowed.
