Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands
October 17 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm$8 – $12
Asheville’s long-standing Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands is bringing interactive and dynamic craft to the heart of downtown at the U.S. Cellular Center for its 72nd year. The public will have the opportunity to shop and connect with regional, master craftsmen. This four-day event lasts until Sunday, October 20 at 5pm.
Throughout the event, more than 190 booths of members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild will line the concourse and arena levels of the U.S. Cellular Center. These artisans undergo a stringent jury process in which their work is evaluated by peers in the industry, honoring the Guild’s legacy of upholding the standards of fine craft. Both contemporary and traditional work in clay, wood, metal, glass, fiber, natural materials, paper, leather, mixed media, and jewelry will be featured.
New to the Craft Fair this Fall are a limited number of guest exhibitors from Piedmont Craftsmen, Carolina Designer Craftsmen, Tennessee Craft, & Kentucky Crafted. Additionally, there will be a range of craft demonstrations with interactive activities for visitors, and a music stage with mountain musicians performing daily.
