Arts, Crafts and Entertainment at Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair

Enjoy unique arts and crafts on display, craft demonstrations and live music at the Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair.

More than 180 craftspeople and artisans from across the United States are participating in the 39th Annual Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair running Oct. 9 – 26, 2014 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center.

Event organizers take great pride in the quality level of this show, reviewing photo submissions of works from each exhibitor to ensure they produce a superior level of handicraft, fine art or talent prior to acceptance into the show. What really makes this event exceptional is the interaction between the exhibitors and public. Attendees can view crafts and art both on display and for sale, but also meet the craftspeople and artisans and see live demonstrations of their talent and skill.

Just a few types of arts & crafts at the show include oil painting, photography, pottery, sculpted leather, chainsaw carving and stained glass.
