Established as way to provide a venue for artisans and crafts people to display their work, the festival has now grown to include more than 100 craft and food vendors. This one-day show is recognized as one of the finest juried shows in the Southeast.
Arts and crafts include two- and three-dimensional work such as pottery, jewelry, wood, fiber art, watercolors and photography. Local and regional artists share their crafts and traditions with visitors and locals alike.
This year’s event features two main stages with The Freight Hoppers and Whitewater Bluegrass Company. Throughout the day there will be mountain music and dance by several local clogging teams, along with performances by the Montreat Pipes & Drums and the Ashegrove Garland Dancers.
