As part of the festivities, local craftsmen will demonstrate 19th century pottery, flute making, weaving, basket making, quilting, spinning, rug making, blacksmithing, storytelling, blowgun shooting, woodcarving, and much more.
To commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812 in which many Cherokees including Joseph Vann fought, reenactors will recreate a military camp from that era.
The Vann House museum will be open featuring a short film and interpretive exhibits on the Vann family and the Cherokee Nation. Volunteers will be on hand to provide tours through the Vann House, the Cherokee homestead and garden, and kitchen reconstruction.
Regular admission prices will be charged on Saturday: $6 for adults, $5.50 for seniors, and $4 for youth ages 6-17.
The Chief Vann House is located three miles west of Chatsworth, Georgia at the intersection of Ga. Highway 52A and 225.
