Nail Tech Event of the Smokies

Arts & Crafts Community



The Appalachian culture thrives in this 8-mile motor loop, with over 100 quaint & nostalgic shops, nestled in the Smoky Mountain beauty.  Situated on the northeast edge of Gatlinburg, this area is the only zoned crafts community in the USA!

Established in 1937, these artisans whittle, paint, sew, cast, weave & carve to create original works such as candles, baskets, quilts, brooms, chairs, pottery, jewelry, dolls, ceramics, scrimshaw, silversmithing, leather products, stained glass, wearable fashions, fine photography, framed art, oils, & watercolors.

As you enter Gatlinburg, turn onto Rte. 321 (Traffic light #3). Travel only a few miles until you see the sign for the
"Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community"  & turn LEFT onto Glades Rd. at Traffic light #3A.

Or catch the YELLOW Trolley at the Ripley's Aquarium, which will take you around the Arts & Crafts community. This Trolley stops running MUCH earlier than the others, so be careful not to miss your ride back into town!
