Musical entertainment will be offered throughout the day. A children’s playground will have many inflatable games.
The Cherokee County Historical Museum will be open, with free admission during festival hours. It features several expanded exhibits.
The fall festival began in 1975 as part of Cherokee County’s two-year celebration of the United States Bicentennial.
The event was originally sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. The Spirit of Cherokee organization took over as sponsor in 1995, and for the past decade the downtown city has sponsored the fall activity.
