Tennessee Craft presents the 52nd Annual Spring Tennessee Craft Fair, in Nashville’s iconic Centennial Park. Artists from across the nation will exhibit their handmade craft on the Great Lawn adjacent to the Parthenon, showcasing fine craft from clay, jewelry and leather to wood, glass, painting and more.
Organizational partners will be onsite in our Kids’ Tent throughout the weekend sharing a variety of craft techniques with our youngest fair goers and guiding children through art activities that they can recreate at home using ordinary materials and their creativity.
In the Demonstration Tent, watch and learn “how it’s made” from the Tennessee Association of Woodturners, the Clay Lady’s Campus, and This Little Light Creative Glass.
The Emerging Makers Tent is another exciting place to be during the fair! Artists who are just beginning their craft careers or are exhibiting in a craft fair for the first time work together in a group selling environment to support each other in set up, display, selling and customer service.
Through the fairs and a robust calendar of year-round programs, Tennessee Craft impacts current and 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.
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 entrance of the Tennessee Craft Fair. Gray Line of Tennessee generously provides this free service.
