Folk and Traditional Arts Events

This summer, Creative Discovery Museum will host three Folk and Traditional Arts Events throughout the summer! Through music, dance, art and food, children and their families will experience different cultures presented by local and regional talent. This summer, the Museum will highlight performance and recreational artforms practiced in the southeast. 

Join us Saturday, July 20 from noon to 4 p.m. for our second event day of the summer which will focus on recreational activities and art forms, such as kite building and fly tying. Many of the activities will allow children to interact with the artists and encourage participation.

Can't make the event July 20? Save the date for our final Folk and Traditional Arts Event on August 17.

"Chattanooga is a global city with people representing many different cultures from around the world! Our Folk and Traditional Arts Events will celebrate a sample of the different cultural art forms practiced in our city and surrounding areas," said Liza Blair, Arts Manager. “These events also provide authentic, hands-on experiences that demonstrate how art brings all cultures together despite our differences.”

All activities included with admission. For more information or any questions, contact Liza Blair at or (423) 648-6069. Performances and activities subject to change.
