Arts & Craft Shows







July, September & October Arts & Crafts Festivals
at the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds

Maggie Valley's largest gathering of artisans and crafters come together to sell their handmade treasures. Artisans from all over the Southeast will be in attendance. Chainsaw art demonstrations and lots of festival food.

Seasonal items, yard art, paintings, photography, pottery, wooden bowls, furniture, jewelry, goat milk soaps and more will be featured at the event.  “There really is something for everyone, from the most affordable handicrafts, to the more expensive museum quality items,” says  Teresa Smith, promoter of the event.  “Even if you don’t plan on buying anything, its fun just to walk around and see the amazing variety of unique items – but rarely do you see anyone leaving without something in their hands.”

Now in its 26th year, the Maggie Valley Arts & Crafts Festivals is one of the longest running and most popular events held in Maggie Valley. The event is FREE and offers plenty of FREE parking! Festival Grounds address: 3374 Soco Road, Maggie Valley NC 28751.
