Gatlinburg Event Boasts Largest Number of Independent Artisans in North America
To showcase the arts and crafts heritage of the Great Smoky Mountains, local independent artisans have held the Great Smoky Easter Arts and Crafts Show for many years. This year, there will be more than 100 artisans and crafters on hand to provide demonstrations and set up booths to sell handcrafted gifts and products.
Featuring one-of-a-kind pieces and finished goods, the show will also include homemade treats for guests to sample and purchase while browsing the art booths. There will also be antique and vintage items available for purchase at the event. Show hours are 10:00am to 5:00pm Wednesday and Thursday, and 10:00am-6:00pm Friday and Saturday.
This Gatlinburg event will be held at the Convention Center from April 16-April 19. Admission is free.

The Great Smoky Easter Arts and Crafts Show is only a preview of all you can see while in the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community. The historic 8 mile loop is only 3 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, where artisans have made some of the most exquisite collectibles and pieces since 1937.
The community includes photographers, basket weavers, quilters, pottery makers, silversmiths and painters. Also in the community are cafes, restaurants, candy shops, and an old-fashioned soda shop. As one of the best places in the region to learn about the history of the mountains and the people of the area, the Arts and Crafts community is perfect for families who want to take a trip back in time while having fun.
