A beautiful convention center in the heart of Gatlinburg. We visited the Craftsmen's Fair and saw some wonderful artisans including glass blowing, someone playing the hammer dulcimer, carvings, ceramics... Something for everyone! Clean restrooms.

My wife and I attended a conference here recently. A helpful staff pointed us in the right direction more than once. Clean and up to date!

Went to the fare on the rainy day. Not much there we cared for. You would think someone would have made bear earrings at this thing. Nope.... Anyway, it wasn't for us. Perhaps we were not in a shopping mood.

Our church is meeting in the main hall of the center. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The hall is absolutely beautiful and spacious. We love this place!

Went for the Fall craft fair a nice clean event with lots of arts and crafts from all over the states. We thought the 7 dollar entry was high for a venue of this size. Parking is an issue always in this area so we parked at light 6 and walked up to the entrance at light 8. Now all... More

We attended the Gatlinburg Craft Fair last weekend and had a great time. Very good crafts from the local and surrounding areas. Would recommend a visit if the craft fair is in town. If the fair is not in town, would highly recommend visiting the local craftsmen on the craft loop road.

Spent an afternoons n look, looking, shopping, and enjoying all the booths at the Craftsman's festival. Yes it is $7.00 per person to get in, but for $2.00 you can get a second day for browsing and buying. So much to see and quite the variety. Music also provided periodically. So nice to sit and relax for a bit. There... More
