Annual Events Cycle

Covid-19 has thrown our lives into turmoil all around the world, and we are also experiencing lots of changes here at the Appalachian Arts Craft Center. If you have any questions about an event, please call us at 865-494-9854. We will try our best to keep Facebook and the website updated but sometimes we don’t quite make it.

The first public event of the year is the Spring Porch and Bake Sale. This sales promotion is usually scheduled to occur around St. Patrick’s Day. At these sales, people can get a great deal on non-juried and student crafts, seconds, and more. This event typically begins by mid-March.

The Appalachian Arts Craft Center’s Annual Gala and Silent Auction fundraiser is also held in the spring each year. This is a fun event with wonderful music, excellent food, socializing, and an opportunity to purchase beautiful handmade crafts, fine arts, services, and other goodies.

The center also hosts its annual Plant Sale in the spring. Local plants that do well in this area will be for sale at very reasonable prices.

The Center also holds a Fall Porch Sale similar to the Spring event. 2020 Porch Sale Instructions

Our Holiday Open House is held during the Holiday Season. The Open House will be announced on the home page in November. Stop by for some holiday goodies and wonderful gift shopping.
