Cherokee Heights Arts Festival – November 9th – Marietta

cherokeeCherokee Heights is a 1924 National Historic Register subdivision just a mile north of the Marietta Square.  For many years, residents of this quaint neighborhood have produced a boutique, invitation-only, arts show to share their talents with friends.  Beginning 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 one day each fall.

This year the show will be held between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on November 9th and will cover the entire block of Etowah Drive between Freyer and Seminole drives, just one block off Cherokee Street, the one-way street heading north from the Marietta Square.  A music stage will spill around the corner onto Freyer Drive and will feature local artists in free performances throughout the day.  Lovingly made local arts and crafts include original paintings, graphics, photography, jewelry, metal work, bird houses, textiles, baked goods, books and much more.  Kids will love our free art-play children’s booth managed by Nerdy Baby, Inc.  There will be lots of Christmas gifting possibilities.  Our neighbor-owned Zaxby Restaurant will be cooking up tasty eats.  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, Inc. , Nerdy Baby and Montgomery Park by Traton Homes.
