There’s a stretch of road in Gatlinburg that is home to the largest group of independent artisans in North America. The Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community encompasses an 8-mile loop that has been designated a Tennessee Heritage Arts & Crafts Trail. Since its foundation in 1937, this community has everything associated with arts and crafts – candles, quilts, brooms, pottery, jewelry, photography, art, ceramics, dolls, stained glass, leather, silver smithing, etc. And for a weekend in April, you can see what the members have to offer at one location.

Ahhhh, springtime. The season of rebirth and renewal. Spring means more daylight, warmer temperatures, spring training, even inspiration for Mel Brooks’ musicals. Even better for visitors in the Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg’s three-month celebration Springfest begins.
