The Smoky Mountain Fall Art and Craft Festival will celebrate 20 years on Oct. 19-20 and Oct. 26-27 at the Macon County Fairgrounds in Franklin. The fairgrounds will be decorated for the season and artisan booths will be filled to the brim with quality crafts.
This is a juried art and craft show with a warm and festive atmosphere. There will be paintings, photography, pottery, baskets, soaps and lotions, stained glass, wood turnings, furniture, dog clothing and accessories, heirloom crochet, quilts, stunning jewelry, candles, gourd art, clocks, knives, whimsical dolls, Indian clothing, florals and Christmas ornaments.
Admission is free for Oct. 19-20, but donations are kindly accepted. Admission for Oct. 26-27 is $2, which also gains you admission to the Chamber’s 24th Annual Leaf Lookers Gemboree next door at the community building.
