Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Community

From downtown to the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, authentic mountain handiwork from top Tennessee artists is here.

Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts CommunityMade with hands and hearts

The nation's largest organization of independent artisans makes its home in Gatlinburg and the 8-mile Arts and Crafts Loop along Route 321, Buckhorn Road and Glades Road. The Tennessee artists and craftspeople here create beautiful and useful things with techniques handed down for centuries. Find gorgeous quilts, old-fashioned straw brooms with hand carved handles, exquisitely woven baskets, hand-dipped scented candles, Victorian ceramic pitchers, pottery, dulcimers, stuffed bears and leather vests. There is handmade jewelry unlike anything you'll find in the malls back home. Painters capture scenes of landscapes and mountain life, while potters and weavers work magic with clay and cloth.

Take the Trolley

Go green and leave the car in town and take an old-fashioned trolley to the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop for only $1. You can easily spend an entire day exploring Gatlinburg's many galleries, boutiques and studios that are an important part of Gatlinburg shopping

Hands On Gatlinburg 

The 2016 Hands On Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Weekend on April 8-10, 2016, provides arts and crafts lovers the opportunity to own a beautifully crafted piece of artwork made with their very own hands.
