There are many ways to support the arts in East Tennessee, but one of our favorites is just around the corner: The 10th annual Gatlinburg Fine Arts Festival will take over downtown at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts campus for three days in early October.
This family friendly event brings some of the best in Appalachian arts, music and food and makes it easily accessible to visitors from all over. Guests will have a chance to take in hands-on demonstrations, hear authentic bluegrass music and bite into some local eats on festival grounds. Nearly 100 artists from Appalachia and beyond will turn downtown Gatlinburg into a true arts event, while music from local legend Smoky Mountain Tunes and Tales will waft through the hills for the three day event.
The Gatlinburg Fine Arts Festival is in its 10th year. The 2014 event kicks off on Friday, October 3 and will wrap up on Sunday, October 5. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
