NASHVILLE, TN – March 29, 2019 – The 48th annual Tennessee Craft Spring Fair, the largest craft fair of its caliber in the region, hosts more than 200 regional craft artists and 45,000 visitors May 3-5 on the lawn in Centennial Park. 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 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.
