200+ Craft Artisans Present Marvelous Art May 3-5, 2019
From Laurie Davis, TN Craft –
The Tennessee Craft Spring Fair is the largest craft fair of its caliber in the region, serving approximately 45,000 visitors in Nashville’s high-traffic midtown park. This juried show presents more than 200 of the region’s finest craft artists on the lawn in Centennial Park May 3, 4, and 5, 2019. Nationally acclaimed regional artists from Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, and Virginia will showcase their work.
Through the fairs and a robust calendar of year-round programs, Tennessee Craft continues to inspire –impacting future generations of craft artists and collectors. Tennessee Craft Fairs (held each Spring and Fall) are the premier outdoor events for artists to showcase and sell their work in an intimate and personal setting. Craft artists connect with the community by demonstrating their craft knowledge and processes.
In addition, the Emerging Makers Tent provides an opportunity for up-and-coming artists to increase their professional development as they experience the fair working alongside established artists. Publix Super Markets Charities and the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee present the Kids’ Tent, a popular and fun-filled art educational experience.
The 48th Annual Spring Tennessee Craft Fair offers cash awards including Best of Show. Awards support Tennessee Craft’s mission of encouraging artists in their work, developing their craft and elevating their career. For more information, please visit: tennesseecraft.org
As always, this free event is accessible to the public – with free parking and free shuttle service on Saturday and Sunday. Shuttles will run in 15-minute loops from the HCA Parking Lots located on Park Plaza to the Tennessee Craft Fair. Gray Line of Tennessee generously provides this free service.
