Fort Loudoun Trade Faire & Sequoyah Cherokee Festival September 6 & 7, 2014

This weekend is the annual 18th Century Trade Faire at Fort Loudoun in Vonore. We attended this event last year and though it was just fantastic! We will definitely be back this year.There will also be a Cherokee Festival at the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum, which we will be visiting for the first time this year.

Make sure you bring cash to the trade faire, as there are lots of booths with great merchandise! There are also lots of different performers and demonstrations, including many people in period costume. This is a great event to bring kids to! The gates open at 9:30 a.m. both days and programming is from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Here’s more information:

Fort Loudoun’s 18th century Trade Faire is part of a larger program known as the Great Island Festival. In the 1700’s there was an island in the channel of the Little Tennessee known as “Miliaquo” or “The Great Island”. That island is now submerged under the waters of Tellico Lake.

However, the formation of Tellico Lake created another island, which today is home to Fort Loudoun State Historic Area and the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum. Annually, the weekend after Labor Day has been set assist for the Great Island Festival. Visitors may attend the 18th century Trade Faire, the Cherokee Festival at the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum or both.

Parking is available at both sites and free shuttle bus operates between the two as a convenience for the visitor.

Admission costs for the events follow:

$5 – Adults (13 and up)
Children 12 and under admitted free
