We cordially invite you to the Cherokee Welcome Center on May 19-20, where we’ll be saying sgi, or "thank you" with Cherokee craftspeople, face painting, traditional dancing, clogging, authentic storytelling, a cornhole tournament, and music. On Saturday, the bonfire starts at 7 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m. Delicious Cherokee food will be available, made by and benefiting members of NAIWA. There will be a sampler platter and an Indian dinner plate as your meal options. The purchase of food and crafts may be made with cash only; there are no ATMs onsite.
Admission to the event is free.
In the event of rain, the event location will be moved to the Cherokee Indian Fair Grounds.
Bring an acoustic instrument and join in on this old-time jam. Or just sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds as others play traditional Appalachian Music. On the covered porch at the visitor center.
