The 51st Annual Spring Tennessee Craft Fair returns to Nashville’s iconic Centennial Park, May 6, 7 and 8.
Officials said, "Join us this Mother’s Day Weekend on the Parthenon Lawn for a celebration of handmade art and craft by artists from Tennessee and across the Southeast. Guest Juror David Reyes of the Huntsville Museum of Art will make award selections including Best of Show and Best New Exhibitor."
The popular Demonstration Tent will feature local artists from The Clay Lady’s Campus, the Tennessee Association of Woodturners, and Betty Turner from This Little Light Creative Glass Art. Stop by the tent throughout the weekend to see firsthand creation of craft art! The Kids’ Tent is another popular stop at the fair! Sponsored by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and Publix Super Markets Charities, our youngest fairgoers can make their own artistic creations to take home.
Artists who are just starting out in their craft careers will be featured in the Emerging Makers Tent (EMT), sponsored by MW Real Estate. The EMT is an opportunity in which mentors shepherd groups of emerging artists through the craft fair process, from set up to chatting with customers to selling their work. This group selling environment is designed to help emerging artisans take the next step toward exhibiting as independent artists on the main tent circle at Tennessee Craft fairs.
This Middle Tennessee tradition will be on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, you can park in the HCA lots on Park Plaza and catch the free shuttle, provided by Gray Line Tennessee, that runs in 15-minute loops.
