Since 1937, the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community has been known for its authentic mountain craftsmen and artisans, all showcased together in a collection of studios and shops along a eight-mile motor loop in Gatlinburg. It is the largest group of independent artisans in North America, proudly preserving the craft heritage of the Great Smoky Mountains on a year-round basis.
Each year, however, the community brings its talents and wares to the Gatlinburg Convention center for two special holiday shows. The Great Smoky Thanksgiving Craft Show runs November 21 through 25, while the Christmas Craft Show runs November 26 through December 2.
Both shows are great opportunities to shop in the comfort and convenience of the Gatlinburg Convention Center while getting a head start on all your Christmas shopping. Search for truly unique gifts for that hard-to-please person on your list and also enjoy live demonstrations as local crafters show off their talents and skills.
And don't forget to wrap up your shopping with a little outdoor fun. If you're looking for the best place to zipline Smoky Mountains style, explore what we have to offer at Smoky Mountain Ziplines. Twenty-four zipline runs, multiple hours of fun, great value and scenic surroundings all add up to the best outdoor experience in the Smokies.
