Events for June
Cherokee Bonfire
Date(s): Jun 21, 2019 - Jun 22, 2019
When: 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Where: At the Intersection of 441 and Hwy 19 in Oconaluftee Island Park

Amazing tales as told by the Cherokee storytellers themselves. Imagine you’re gathered around a roaring bonfire, the occasional spark shooting high into the night sky, as a strong but gentle voice begins a story you’ve never heard. As the drama builds, you’re nearly breathless, your own heartbeat matching the occasional beat of the hand drum the storyteller uses. Drawing from a rich oral tradition dating back millennia, the Cherokee Bonfire series runs throughout the tourism season, and is an enchanting way to interact with the rich details of the Cherokee people and their stories. Get your room reserved in Cherokee, grab a blanket and someone close to you, and enjoy a cultural experience only Cherokee can offer.

The Bonfire stories crackles from 7:00–9:00 p.m. on the following dates at Oconaluftee Islands Park, on Tsali Blvd.: Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays, May 22 - October 12. Expanded schedule for July 1-6. No bonfires in September.
