The Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair has been a Gatlinburg Tennessee tradition for 38 years. It has been voted one of the Southeast’s “Most Popular Events”, and it hosts Artisans and Craftsmen from all over the United States.
There are 200 booths in this Open to the Public event, and not only are the hand-made products beautiful works of art, but most of the booths are decorated works of art also, giving the visitor a dual experience of beautiful displays and beautiful products to admire and to purchase. Many Artisans work during the Fair displaying their talents and bringing to life works of art from wood, canvas, paint, glass, fabric and almost any material known to man that can be sculpted, painted, sewn, cut, printed, created or designed.
In addition to the wondrous works of art there are country and bluegrass bands performing during the day, including Dennis Lee and Band, and Tim Watson “The Fiddle Man”. Food and drinks are conveniently located in the Exhibit Hall.
The Southeast Tourism Society says, “Rarely does an event come along that features the wonderful variety of juried artists as the Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair. It is a show that should not be missed!”
The Fall Craftsmen’s Fair is in full swing at the Gatlinburg Convention Center in the heart on Gatlinburg Tennessee on Motor Nature Trail at Stoplight # 8. The show is open daily 10:00 am until 6:00 pm, and Sunday from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm.
