Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands - Oct. 17-20, 2013

The 66th Annual Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands – Oct. 17-20, 2013

The Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands in Asheville, NC is not your average craft show. For one thing, it has been going on since 1948.

Finally, the standard of quality of the wares displayed is head and shoulders above that which you might envision when you hear the term “craft fair.”

The Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands represents the proud tradition and standards of excellence embodied in the Southern Highland Craft Guild, which was formed in 1930 to help support and market for Appalachian craftspeople.
