The Cherokee Nation announced on Tuesday it will be postponing its 15th annual Cherokee Art Market until 2021.
The market was originally planned to occur October 10-11 and typically draws in thousands of visitors each year.
The Cherokee Art Market is one of the largest Native American art shows in the state, hosting 150 elite Native American artists at the two-day event and representing 50 tribes.
Travis Owens, director of cultural tourism for Cherokee nation, said, “The artists featured at Cherokee Art Market have dedicated their lives to mastering their craft and have each played an important role in sharing the rich history and culture of Native nations. We’re working hard to identify new and exciting ways to showcase their talents in a safe way.”
