Held in summer and again in the fall, Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair is inspiring. Autumn’s brisk air signals all of nature to transform the Great Smoky Mountains from lush green to a majestic patchwork quilt of colors. The celebration of fall also encompasses one of the southeast’s most popular events, the annual Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair.
In October, the Gatlinburg Convention Center blossoms into a multilevel mecca of the top crafts people from across the United States. A unique characteristic of the Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair is that artisans make their art available for viewing and sale, and demonstrate their special talents and skills during this show, recognized as one of the top 20 events in the southern U.S. by the Southeast Tourism Society.
Art, crafts and music lovers will discover over 200 booths featuring some of the nation’s finest work. Artisans and craftspeople are on hand to chat about their skills and products, answer questions and offer unique art for sale. While at the event, enjoy live country & bluegrass entertainment.
