Attracting 50,000 visitors each fair, Tennessee Craft Fairs bring together more than 200 juried craft artists with national and regional reputations sharing their best work with the community. Guests at this popular festival love the personal connection with makers from Tennessee and beyond; learning what inspires each artist and searching for unusual art objects and functional treasures created by these skillful artisans.

In addition to the array of high-quality craft, the Tennessee Craft Fair Kids' Tent provides a variety of hands-on activities allowing young artists to explore community through craft.
