The 42nd annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair will be will be April 27 and 28, 2013. That's the weekend before the Kentucky Derby.

The Cherokee Triangle Art Fair is a juried fair with more than 200 artists' booths. The two-day event is free and open to the public. The Art Fair is held in Louisville's historic Cherokee Triangle neighborhood on tree-lined Cherokee Parkway between Willow Avenue and Cherokee Road adjacent to the Gen. John Breckinridge Castleman statue.

Art Fair patrons can view and purchase original art and often meet and talk with the artists. Fairgoers can enjoy food, drink, entertainment and music. On Saturday evening, music and food service will continue until 8 p.m.

Other attractions of the fair include the plant booth with a lush variety of plants and herbs, the Cherokee Triangle Association booth with offerings of items with the Cherokee Triangle logo, and the popular Children's Tent with a variety of activities.

The annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair is the major fundraiser for Louisville's Cherokee Triangle Association, and the event's proceeds are returned to the community and neighborhood in numerous ways. Annually, the Cherokee Triangle Association uses proceeds from the fair, along with other revenue sources, to help fund summer concerts in Willow Park, to maintain the General Castleman statue and its landscaping, and to make donations to the Highlands/Shelby Park branch of the Louisville Free Public Library, the Highlands Communities Ministries, and to the Olmsted Parks Conservancy.

For the safety of all patrons, the Art Fair is a pet-free zone. Attendees are asked to leave their pets at home. Art fair organizers also request there be no skateboards, skates, or rollerblades, and that cyclists walk their bikes within the Art Fair. Close-in parking for the handicapped is available.
