The 9th Annual Gatlinburg Fine Arts Festival takes place at the Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts in downtown Gatlinburg October 4 through 6. This event showcases local, regional and nationally known artists who are considered tops in their fields. Exhibitors are chosen by a jury, presenting works that range from ceramics and glass to watercolor and woodworking. $10,000 in prizes is at stake.
In addition to the fine-art exhibits, the festival includes free children's activities, live music and the beautiful backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains. The event is free to the public, and attendees will have the chance to meet and greet their favorite artists. The entry fees of participating artists go toward the benefit of the Arrowmont school, the Sevier County Arts Council and the Gatlinburg Boys & Girls Club art program.
And if you're considering spending some time this weekend on a zipline, Gatlinburg doesn't have as much to offer as we do at Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge. In fact, we've elevated the zipline experience to its own art form thanks to our 14-line canopy tour and four high-adrenaline SuperZip lines.
