The 10th Annual Gatlinburg Fine Arts Festival at Arrowmont is slated for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 3 through 5 on the campus of Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. The diversity of creativity in fine arts and crafts makes for a prestigious event against the backdrop of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains.
The three-day festival showcases artists at the top of their fields. Participating exhibitors are chosen by jury in 16 categories, ranging from ceramics and glass to watercolor and woodworking. Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the best in fine arts and crafts, talk to the artists, hands-on activities for children, Appalachian music and southern barbecue.
While the Festival is free to visitors, the event serves as a major fundraiser for Arrowmont, the Sevier County Arts Council and the Gatlinburg Boys and Girls Club art program. The Fine Arts Festival is located at traffic light #5 on the Parkway in Gatlinburg adjacent to the McMahan Parking Garage.
