My sisters & I have been going to the craft fair for several years and have always loved it; however, this year it just didn't seem as good. There were a few vendors that we were used to seeing and they weren't there. Also, I got grossed out toward the end. One of the vendors there that is from Louisiana... More

The Craftsmen's Fair was amazing. This was my first year going and I definitely plan to return. The talent that these folks have is mind blowing. There were lots of items and some were a little pricey. Most of the vendors were very friendly and I spent way too much money in there!

The last two years I got in free, as I am in a wheel chair(handicapped free) But they Stopped that... More

We went to the Convention Center to see the craft fair. There were over 200 vendors there. We found it to be interesting for the most part. There are some real artists with great imaginations there! Many of the items being sold are very unique that you don't see elsewhere.

Best variety of artists & crafters! Wide variety. Highly skilled. Clean bathrooms, food court & entertainment all under one roof. Fully worth $7 per person entry fee. Glad we found this while waiting on return trolley.

We have previously attended the Gatlinburg Gathering several times in this Convention Center, so we were familiar with the layout. The craft show was well organized and made an easy flow through the vendors. I would definitely recommend this event , especially if you enjoy watching demonstrations.The center has entrances on the Parkway side and on Historic Nature Trail. There... More

We got lucky that they were having their annual arts and crafts fair & exhibit. So many neat things to look at and purchase. Picked up a lot of unique items for good price.

We really enjoyed seeing the artisans and makers at the Craftmen's Fair. We didn't plan to go to Gatlinburg for that, but will probably try to schedule our fall trips around it in the future. The glass blowing demonstration by Mr. Glass was amazing! We wanted all of his pumpkins! And the gentlemen who make such amazing creations out of... More

We attended the Fall Craft show and we can't say enough positive things about it. The hall was clean and exhibitioniears layer out so you had enough room to move freely among the crowd. It was a well out show with over 100 crafters.
