Smoky Mountain Arts & Crafts Community

Years ago when vacationers came to the Great Smoky Mountains, they might have remembered the name Goldrush Junction, or the Space Needle, however, remembering the names Pigeon Forge or Sevierville would have been unlikely.  These vacationer's spent their time in the mountains, in Cade's Cove, or walking the strip in Gatlinburg. They held in amazement the considerable talents of the Craftsmen, and admired their talents that were handed down from generation to generation. Located in the beautiful Glades area of Gatlinburg, this area is like no other in the Smokies; next to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this is the most unique,

overlooked, absolutely incredible area in the entire Smokies!

The Great Smoky Arts And Crafts Community is one of the 'best kept secrets' not only in the Smokies, but it is also unique to the entire U.S.!  This approximately 8 mile loop is concentrated with craftsmen & artists, where young and old alike will be literally thrilled to see these folks and their shops, with many of them making their wares right before your eyes! This is why this area should be part of every vacation plan for the Smokies.

Take a trolley or your car and visit the loop of Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community and see craftsmen and artisans using simple tools as skillful hands whittle, carve, cast, sew, weave and transform raw elements into works of art and function.

The Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community is recognized internationally as the largest group of independent artisans in North America with nearly 100 shops, studios, galleries, cafes and lodging. Check it out - with such an array to choose from, you're sure to find something to fit your fancy!
