43rd Annual Tennessee Craft Fair Dates Announced


Tennessee Craft announced this week that its 43rd Annual Fall Tennessee Craft Fair will be returning to the newly renovated Great Lawn in Nashville’s iconic Centennial Park. The event will be held on October 8th-10th, 2021 by the Parthenon museum.

At the event, artists from across the nation will exhibit their handmade craft – showcasing fine craft from clay, jewelry and leather to wood, glass, painting and more. By connecting with the community through these events, artists are able to thoroughly demonstrate their craft knowledge and processes. Through the fairs and a robust calendar of year-round programs, Tennessee Craft impacts current and future generations of craft artists and collectors.

The event is supported by Metro Arts, Tennessee Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, Windgate Foundation, Publix Super Markets Charities, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, Gray Line, and Metro Parks.

The 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 entrance of the Tennessee Craft Fair.

Fair hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more details, maps and event information, visit tennesseecraft.org/fallfair.

Tennessee Craft, formerly The Tennessee Association of Craft Artists (TACA), works to continue and create Tennessee’s fine craft tradition. With more than 500 members throughout the state, Tennessee Craft serves as the premier connecting point for local, independent makers and their audiences through craft fairs, exhibitions, professional development, networking, mentorship and other educational programs.
