This much anticipated downtown Gatlinburg event kicks off on Friday, May 13 at 6 p.m. with “A Night with The Artists Party” held at Mills Auditorium. There will be an abundance of entertainment, appetizers, beer, wine, and a cash liquor bar. Tickets are $50 to attend, but you’ll get that back in a $50 voucher to spend at the Arts Festival. Call 865-436-7484 to get your tickets!
Head downtown to Arrowmont School at traffic light #5 at 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday to enjoy a full day of art and artists along with an entertainment debut of the 2011 Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales. The festival features a kid’s area with pottery demonstrations, face painting and a giant aquarium-themed mural your kids can help paint, artist exhibits and art technique demonstrations, and mouth-watering BBQ! The festival runs through 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 14 and 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 15.
We hope you’ll stop by and introduce yourself to our very own Rafael Alegria. He is a member of the Carr’s staff and this is his first year to participate in the Art’s Festival. He has provided several of the paintings that decorate our Cottages, Motel and Cabins… and we are SO proud of him!
