|Annual Special Event Craft Shows
Showcasing Our Heritage
Arts and crafts have long held a deep association with the Southern Appalachian
Mountains. Nowhere else will you find a richer heritage of fine craftsmanship than
in The Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community. This area offers the best in a wide
range of shops including pottery, woodcarving, candle making, quilting, weaving,
broom making, art galleries, and many other fine art forms.
Some of our artist and crafters are second, third and even fourth generation
artisans carrying on the tradition of their heritage while making a living the way
pioneers did back in the 1760s and ‘70s.
Annual Special Event Craft Shows
Our craft shows are held in the Gatlinburg Convention Center, which is
conveniently located in downtown Gatlinburg. As always, the admission is free! You
can meet and visit with members of the Arts and Crafts Community as they produce
one-of-a-kind works of art available for purchase. Our shows are just a preview of
what is in store for you when you visit the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community
located just 3 miles from downtown. Step back in time as you witness over 100
artist and crafters producing their wares by hand in this historic area.
