- Description This is an indoor event within one mile of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park entrance (the most visited national park in the United States with 12 million visitors per year), located near Dollywood and the Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, as well as close to Cherokee Casino, several rivers and lakes, and a one-hour drive from Knoxville. For 10 days in mid-July and 18 days in October, the event fills the entire main floor and gallery of the 150,000 square feet of downtown’s Gatlinburg Convention Center, and hosts artisans and craftsmen from all over the nation. Nearly 200 booths with unique and one-of-a-kind handmade products are beautifully displayed, giving skilled craftspeople the opportunity to demonstrate their talents and sell their wares. Each participant is subject to a rigorous jury process to ensure the uniqueness and quality of their respective products. All items represented must be handmade, of utmost quality, and without duplication. The Gatlinburg Craftsmen’s Fair and Smoky Mountain Resort Ministries provide a free Kid’s Corner during our July fair, with a selection of D.I.Y. crafts for our youngest visitors to take home with them.
