Gatlinburg Fine Arts Festival
|A gorgeous mountain backdrop mixed with diversity in creativity from across the nation is the perfect pairing for the 9th Annual Gatlinburg Fine Arts Festival, October 4-6.
Set at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this event showcases artists from across the nation from a range of styles. Juries choose each exhibitor to participate in one of 16 categories ranging from ceramics and glass to watercolor and woodworking. In all, $10,000 in prizes and purchase vouchers is at stake.
For artists, the festival is a prestigious showcase event while for visitors, it’s a guaranteed opportunity to enjoy the best in fine arts, music, a fantastic children activity program, and take in the Great Smoky Mountains.
The festival is a three-day street fair set at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, with attendees of the free event mingling with their favorite artists. A special “Night with the Artist Party” is also scheduled.
While admission to the festival is free to visitors, the event serves as a major fundraiser for the internationally renowned Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, the Sevier County Arts Council and the Gatlinburg Boys & Girls Club art program.
