If it’s one thing that Gatlinburg really knows how to do, its put on a top-of-the-line arts & crafts show. That’s thanks in large part to Gatlinburg’s vibrant arts & crafts community. And they aren’t slowing down anytime soon with the Great Smoky Thanksgiving Arts & Crafts Show scheduled to take place at the Gatlinburg Convention Center November 21-25.
It’s an ideal place to find that perfect Christmas gift for that hard to shop for relative or significant other. The Gatlinburg Convention Center has a reputation of bringing in some of the finest local and national crafters each year. Want to shop the best collection of Thanksgiving crafts you’ll come across all year? Well, better plan on attending this craft show. And for those of you looking ahead toward Christmas, you’re sure to find some Christmas stuff there as well.
Let the Thanksgiving Crafts Show ease your holiday shopping concerns. From that intricate piece of jewelry to that perfect piece to cap off your front lawn, you’ll find it here in November. Take your time while you wander from table to table. You don’t want to miss a thing. This is also a great place to get tips and ask crafters questions about their works. They also know one another pretty well through the craft show events so if you’re looking for something special they know who sells or can point you in the right direction.
It’s not unusual to see around 200 different crafters at these events – that’s how popular they are. As was previously mentioned, you can find basically anything here from paintings to wood works, just ask. Each table is choc full of merchandise and the crafters are as talented as they are knowledgeable about their type of craft. Again, take the time to get to know the people and you’ll have a greater acceptance for the craft and make your purchase all that more rewarding. You won’t find a greater group of crafters anywhere in the country than the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community. They live it, breath it, love it, and surround themselves with it.
The crafts and art are the main draw of the show but there is always some kind of entertainment throughout the day, food to enjoy and demonstrations from a range of talented artists. Hey, you may walk up to someone finishing a perfectly turned piece of pottery, or finishing the final brush strokes on a brand new painting. Take in the show for a bit of Christmas shopping, expanding your knowledge about the crafts, shaking hands with a group of new friends or just attending one of the best events in the Southeast you are sure find something unique at the Great Smoky Thanksgiving Arts & Crafts show..
