MARIETTA - The 10th Annual Cherokee Heights Arts Festival (CHAF) is November 10th from 9am - 4pm. The Festival is on Etowah Drive between Freyer and Seminole Drives. There is no admission charge, all parking is free, and everyone is invited!
Cherokee Heights is a 1924 National Historic Register subdivision just a mile north of the Marietta Square. For many years, residents of this quaint neighborhood had produced a boutique, invitation-only art show to share their talents with friends. In 2009, they moved the show outdoors and threw it open to the world. They now offer the creative work of more than thirty neighbors and friends for this one day each year. The show will cover the entire block of Etowah Drive between Freyer and Seminole drives, just one block off Cherokee Street. Check out the Cherokee Heights Arts Festival Facebook page for a preview of the artists’ works.
Two music “stages” at the ends of the block will feature local musicians in free performances throughout the day. Lovingly made local arts and crafts include original paintings, wood work, pottery, graphics, photography, jewelry, metal work, textiles, baked goods, original books and much more. Kids will love our free art-play children’s booths managed by Nerdy Baby, Inc. and by Allison Fink of the Marietta Museum of Art. There are lots of Christmas gifting possibilities. Santa Claus himself will be available for Christmas photos all day.
