This area was so crowed by lots of people. Very expensive merchandise. Know it is hand made but, prices way over the top for other events I have attended. Will say it was a very clean area. Restrooms very clean and easy to find.

Come here every October for the Craftsmen's Fair. Great location, plenty of room and a great place to do some shopping during the Fair!

We visited the convention center for a Fall Crafter Show-we loved it....so much space for the booths, easy ingress and egress, very clean, inside and out and great bathrooms. Great venue for many, many happenings!

We were there for a craft show and it was very well set up and clean. Modern facility with plenty of restrooms available. Large halls and display areas. The atmosphere was warm and friendly with good signage.

A must for your trip to Gatlinburg. Lots of things to do here. It was fun for our family and showed us additional places of interest so we could get the most out of our trip.

It’s like an arts and crafts fair with mostly local wares, which are very unique.

There are trolleys that service the main strip of Gatlinburg, and a very few Uber drivers. I was there 2 weeks ago , and only had 2 Uber drivers available at any given time.

There are "pay" parking lots on both sides of the road- worst case scenario you have to walk a few short blocks
