The Fort Loudoun State Historic Park and the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum are partnering for the Great Island Festival, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. ET each day. The Great Island Festival is a series of concurrent events, designed to take visitors back in time to an 18th century Trade
Faire and a Cherokee encampment. The 18th century Trade Faire at Fort Loudoun features encampments of soldiers, settlers and American Indians. There will be demonstrations throughout the day in artillery and musketry, along with several battle and skirmish re-enactments. Merchants and artisans will be on hand to peddle food and wares reminiscent of the time. Admission is $5 for adults aged 12 and up; children 11 and under will be admitted free of charge.
