Church Street Art & Craft Show
Saturday, October 9th

Application deadline: August 1st (but note: "All applicants will be juried for the 2021 show. Space is limited. Applicants will be judged on a first-come-first-served basis. Apply early!")

About the festival, from the application form:

Held during the height of the color season in the Great Smoky Mountains, the Church Street Art & Craft Show attracts more than 20,000 visitors. Over 125 artists, crafters and food vendors from throughout the southeast will line Waynesville's Historic Main Street to help celebrate the festival.

What began as a small gathering of artists and craftsmen has evolved into a high quality, well-balanced, juried show now widely known as one of the finest in the region. Downtown Waynesville's picturesque Main Street is closed to vehicular traffic the day of the show, transforming it into an art and craft marketplace.

Local musicians and dancers perform, adding to the festive atmosphere and the mountains provide a dramatic backdrop. Founded in 1983 by artist Teresa Pennington and Richard Miller, the Church Street Art & Craft Show is now sponsored by the Downtown Waynesville Association.
