Local Culture & Artisans
Take home a bit of Tennessee tradition and culture. From brilliantly colored blown glass to intricately woven baskets to skillfully crafted jewelry, pots, furniture and more, Tennessee's finest treasures are often sculpted by the hands of its talented artisans and craftsmen.
Frequent the Bluff View Art District in Chattanooga, where a dedication to the visual, horticultural and culinary arts can be experienced by all the senses. Plan a day for a drive through the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community, an 8-mile loop that is home to the largest group of independent artisans in North America. Most importantly, circle the calendar for one of Tennessee's fantastically colorful artisan festivals. Rogersville's Heritage Days has fun for everyone with crafters and cloggers, while Nashville's Music and Molasses Arts and Crafts Festival is the perfect way to kick off the autumn season.
