Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park
This fun and educational event provides the opportunity for our visitors to experience many facets of Native American culture, particularly that of the Cherokee. The event opens on Saturday and Sunday, running from 10 am until 6:00 pm. Most activities are held at Fort Watauga, unless it rains. In the event of rain the show will relocate to the Visitors Center.

This weekend long festival will feature traditional and contemporary arts and crafts, traditional Native American song and dance, Cherokee storytelling and legends, Native American flute, Cherokee language workshops, and craft demonstrations and arts and crafts sales.

A unique feature of the Native American Culture festival is our educational/ demonstration area, located within Fort Watauga. The dance circle is located in the center of the fort, where the popular traditional dance and drum performances take place. In addition, flute music, storytelling, lectures, and so much more take place within the circle, which share native culture and history with our visitors.

Contact the park for the weekend schedule and the list of featured artist and special events. Go to Sycamore Shoals Native American Festival Details about a week before the event for the full schedule of events.

Hours: Saturday & Sunday 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

While you’re here for the Sycamore Shoals Native American Festival, be sure to visit Fort Watauga and step into a colorful Revolutionary world. Walk among living historians who share our past through talks, displays, and demonstrations of 18th century life.
