Celebrating 73 years of Craft | The Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands Skip to content

In order to uphold the mission of providing a marketplace for the creative community in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Southern Highland Craft Guild is attempting to continue their 73-year old tradition by hosting their first-ever virtual Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands, July 16-19th, 2020.

This four-day online event will feature a directory of artisans of fine craft, both traditional and contemporary. Visitors to the site will have the opportunity to explore works of clay, fiber, glass, leather, metal, paper, wood, jewelry, and more through the virtual “booths” of participating members. Visitors can shop directly from artists, watch videos of craft demonstrations, interact with artists in their studios through live streams, and participate in a raffle drawing. All proceeds from the raffle will go towards the Guild’s education department.

Stay tuned for updates as we navigate through this new and exciting venture for our 90 year old organization. Sign up for our newsletter or follow our social accounts at the bottom of this page for the latest updates!

History of the Craft Fair

In 1948, the first Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands was held in Gatlinburg, TN on a Summer evening under canvas tents at Arrowmount School of Crafts. This was the first attempt of a marketplace for craftsmen of the Southern Highlands. This year marks our 72nd year continuing the legacy of a craft marketplace.
