Admission is free and there is plenty of free parking.

A variety of fine handmade crafts created by artisans from throughout the south east including furniture, jewelry, knitting, pottery, quilted items,  floral arrangements, leather work, scroll work, crochet, soaps and many other traditional crafts.

Take a break and join in a game of Cribbage, watch a chainsaw artist demonstration or enjoy some food from the many food vendors on hand serving barbecue, hot dogs, hamburgers, Italian sausage, ice cream, funnel cakes, kettle corn, lemonade, milk shakes, coffee, and other fine delicacies.

There will also be a food drive to benefit the local community. Organizers have joined with the Maggie Valley Methodist Church Food Pantry to replenish their shelves.

With every donation you will receive a raffle ticket. This ticket will give you the opportunity to win a handmade craft donated by one of the many talented artisans. You do not have to be present to win. The drawing will be held Sunday afternoon.
