Cherokee Triangle Art Fair

This weekend is the 45th annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair, organized by the Cherokee Triangle Association, which started in 1972. This event, always the week before derby, will be held from April 30, 2016 at 10:00 am through May 1, 2016. Cherokee Triangle is the neighborhood along Cherokee Parkway between Willow Avenue and Cherokee Road.

The fair begins with a Children's Parade at 10:00 am on April 30. Dozens of artists come back year after year and many new artists not only from Louisville and Kentucky, but also all around the country, come to fill the over 200 booths. Art is available for sale and the patrons often have an opportunity to meet the artists themselves.

Art is not the only offering available for the weekend. Fairgoers can purchase food and drink. For children, there is an activity area, offering a variety of events to entertain children. A plant boot includes an assortment of lush plants and herbs. Live music is also provided. On Saturday, is a mixture of classic rock, in the early afternoon, and high-energy, dance music up to 8:00 pm. On Sunday, bluegrass music begins the afternoon before giving way to swing music to close out the fair.

The Cherokee Triangle Art Fair is the major fundraiser for the Cherokee Triangle Association. The proceeds are used, in numerous, ways for the community and neighborhood; including the annual, free, summer concerts.

Cherokee Triangle, named a Historic Preservation District in 1972, is a neighborhood located two miles from downtown Louisville and is within walking distance of Bardstown Road which offers many other diverse activities: coffee shops, restaurants, movie theaters, boutiques, and antique stores. Travel away from Bardstown Road and you will enter Cherokee Park which allows bike riding, walking, sledding and picnics. Trees, some over 100 years old, line the streets providing shade and beauty. There is a diverse array of architecture that includes Italianate, Second Empire, Queen Anne, Richardsonian, Romanesque, Neoclassical, Tudor Revival, and Beaux Arts.

Bring your kids for fun activities, music, and find unique pieces of art in a friendly outdoor atmosphere while also supporting the Cherokee Triangle Association.


Alternative to Thunder Over Louisville

Thunder Over Louisville is Saturday April 23,2016. This event kicks off Kentucky Derby Festival and brings hundreds of thousands of people to downtown Louisville for the air show and the nation's largest fireworks display. For people that don't want to deal with the crowds and traffic snarls that go with them, you can enjoy The Bard's Town, located in the Highlands, at 1801 Bardstown Rd. 

The Bard's Town has an evening full of events scheduled for April 23, 2016. At 6:00 pm and again at 8:00 pm, live music is performed by Brazukas, the Band from Brazil, presenting An Evening in Brazil.

The Bard's Town not only has the lounge, where the jazz music will be featured, and the theater itself, but also offers a restaurant with a full menu. The venue was started to promote local artists and playwrights. In fact, the cooks and servers are asked to be creative and have passion in the theater, music, and art. When The Bard's Town opened, there was no venue for live theater.
