So this event is basically free, provided you pre-commit to purchasing some amazing artistic creations! And who wouldn’t want to?

Check out some examples of the exhibitors' work!Saturday and Sunday, enjoy a street fair, free for guests, on the Parkway in Gatlinburg. Exhibitors will be set up, showing off their fine creations: everything from jewelry to clothes, pottery to furniture, paintings to photography, and more! It’s free to look and admire, but even more fun to show your support for these wonderful artists by purchasing some of their beautiful creations to take home with you. There will also be live performances from Tunes & Tales, with musicians, dancers, and storytellers.

So come on down and enjoy the party!
