Annual October Craft Show
Art, crafts and music lovers will be delighted to know that the 39th Annual Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair is scheduled to kick off October 9 and will be in full swing through October 26. Over 180 artisans from coast to coast are planning to bring their talent to downtown Gatlinburg. These artisans and craftsmen will fill the floor of the convention center with individual booths to demonstrate skills and offer their goods and wares for sale. Plan to take your time visiting all the booths and even find a comfortable spot to enjoy free live country and bluegrass music. The talented Dennis Lee and Band or Tim Watson “The Fiddle Man” will be performing every day at 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.
Each day the fun begins at 10 a.m. when the doors of the Gatlinburg Convention Center open and welcome you to the craft show. Adult admissions are $6 and children 12 and under are free. A tour of the 39th Annual Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair will make your visit to the Smokey Mountains unique with such cultural entertainment! Why not plan to do some early Christmas shopping and have the artist sign your heirloom gift? You can shop til you drop because the doors don’t close until 6 p.m. daily and 5 p.m. Sundays.
The Fall Craftsmen’s Fair welcomes and accommodates large groups and is a great activity for family reunions, church groups and seniors.
