The artsy village of Dillsboro welcomes 40 demonstrating artists along Front Street with plenty of colorful creations. This area is a haven for artists and you'll meet the best of them. This favorite fall event is free to attend and held 10 AM until 4 PM.
Find a big variety of art while enjoying live music throughout the day. Dogs are allowed on a leash. Food vendors will set up along Church Street, and you'll find many other restaurant choices within walking distance. Don't miss the fudge shop!
In addition to the artist tents, stroll the streets of Dillsboro to find hundreds of artists' works at nearby galleries. Dogwood Crafters (90 Webster Street) cooperative is a must stop with art and craft from 100+ mountain artists. Relax with local brews at Innovation Station Brewery. Nearby is the Jackson County Green Energy Park with more artists at work.
Since parking in town will be limited, we suggest parking at Monteith Farmstead Park (100 West Hometown Place, Dillsboro) and taking the shuttle for $2/person.
