October Craft Shows

Harvest the Creativity

Pigeon Forge Rotary Club Craft Fair, Dollywood Harvest Festival Crafts, and Gatlinburg Craft Show

Pigeon Forge Rotary Club Craft Show | Dollywood Harvest Festival Crafts | Gatlinburg Craft Fair

When the month of October arrives, most people are dreaming of colorful leaves, crisp air and pumpkin spice. But here in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, it’s fall craft shows that are vying to be on the top of your fall favorites list!

Throughout the county, the harvest season welcomes accomplished crafters to bring their special skills and beautiful creations to our area to participate in one – or several – of the season’s craft fairs. Here are just a couple of the most popular that if you’ve never been, you’ll get hooked and want to return year after year.

September 28-November 3
Don’t let the excitement of the Dollywood Southern Gospel & Fall Harvest Festival Great Pumpkin LumiNights distract you from visiting Craftsman’s Valley and booths throughout the park! This is where you’ll find time-honored tradition, gifted artists and the best souvenirs and heirloom gifts of the season. This year’s mountain crafts’ highlights include Native American pottery, glass jewelry, corn shux, Dulcimers and demonstrations in a variety of skills including woodworking, chair caning, and Fiddle making.  Click here for a sneak peek at the list of craftsmen.

Dollywood opens everyday at 10 a.m. and closes at 9 p.m. weekdays and 10 p.m. on weekends.

September 29-October 27
Big tent time! They must be doing something right because the Rotary Club Craft Fair, held at Patriot Park, has been going strong for over 40 years. Open everyday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. While admission is free, this event is one of Rotary’s largest fundraiser and your donation is great appreciated and does good works throughout Sevier County. Remember to bring your list because you’ll definitely want to do some early Christmas shopping.

Pigeon Forge Craft Show, Gatlinburg Craft Fair

Traditional Talent!

October 4-21
Downtown Gatlinburg is where you’ll want to be with plenty of time available to experience the 43rd Fall Craftsmen’s Fair. Adult admission is $7 and hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Saturday. You’ll find more than 180 crafters from across the nation who’s talents are sure to inspire and awe. We suggest that you bring your own convenient shopping bag or basket and plan to ‘sit a spell’ enjoying the live country, bluegrass and gospel music to rest your feet. You can easily spend the entire day but if you need even more time, get yourself a discounted ‘next day ticket’ while you’re there.
