The Gatlinburg Convention Center is a great meeting and or activities center. In the Fall, our favorite event is the Mountain Crafters Show. It's like bringing all the crafters from the area into one meeting place. The facility itself is large, clean and well maintained. The restrooms are clean and well maintained. For a large public facility, that's a big... More

I attended the Craftsman Show here and the venue is nice and comfortable. The show provided strategically placed chairs to sit and rest throughout the show. Restrooms are conveniently located throughout the facility as well. I enjoyed the show and the venue.

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.

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.
