Autumn’s brisk air signals all of nature to transform the Great Smoky Mountains from lush green to a majestic patchwork quilt of colors.
The celebration of fall also encompasses one of the southeast’s most popular events... the 40th Annual Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair. From October 8 through 25, the Gatlinburg Convention Center blossoms into a multi-level mecca of the top craft people from all across the United States.
A unique characteristic of the Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair is the fact that artisans not only make their art available for viewing and sale, but also demonstrate their special talents and skills during this show, which is recognized as one of the top 20 events in the Southern U.S. by the Southeast Tourism Society.
