The fifth annual Cherokee Heights Arts Festival will take place on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Cherokee Heights is a 1924 National Historic Register neighborhood just one mile north of the Marietta Square. It has become a residential magnet for creative folks, and they invite the world to this free arts festival on the second Saturday of each November.
The show will cover the entire block of Etowah Drive between Freyer and Seminole drives, just one block off Cherokee Street. Music stages will spill around the corner onto Freyer Drive and will feature local artists in free performances throughout the day. Lovingly neighborhood-made arts and crafts include original paintings, graphics, photography, jewelry, metal work, bird houses, textiles, baked goods and much more, including our local authors and poets autographing their books.
Kids will love the free art-play-education booth managed by Nerdy Baby, Inc. Plenty of free parking is close by along Freyer and Seminole drives. This show is free to all, courtesy of sponsorships by First Landmarks Bank, Keep Marietta Beautiful, Nerdy Baby and Montgomery Park by Traton Homes.
The event is sponsored by Keep Marietta Beautiful, Inc. of the Marietta Parks and Recreation Department.
