One of my favorite Louisville events all year long takes place the weekend before the Kentucky Derby right here in the Highlands! The Cherokee Triangle Art Fair on Cherokee Pkwy near the Castleman
statue is an art showcase, and a neighborhood showcase all in one. Given the time of year and all the fresh blossoms on the trees, the Highlands, as a neighborhood, shows like a piece of art during this festival. Originally created in 1972 as a neighborhood plant exchange, the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair now has more than 200 artist booths that fill the parkway with creativity and love. There’s live music, entertainment for the kids, food, drink, and loads of fellowship with your neighbors.
This year marks the 43rd annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair, taking place on April 26th and 27th from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. As always, the music and the food will continue until 8:00 pm on Saturday evening. Patrons of the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair can purchase original artwork directly from the artist. Often times you can meet and chat with the artists themselves, or maybe you just want to walk the aisles and take everything in. Whatever your style is, there will be plenty of action at the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair, but they do ask that you leave your pets at home. Rollerblades, skates, and skateboards are not allowed either, and anyone arriving on a bicycle is asked to walk beside their bike while traveling through the fair.
The Cherokee Triangle Art Fair is the major annual fundraising event for the Cherokee Triangle Association, a prime example of a quality neighborhood association in a thriving Historic Preservation District. Proceeds are invested back into the neighborhood in a variety of ways. An all around good time and a wonderful tradition, this is just the place to feel one with the Highlands of Louisville, KY!
