Knox Area Weekend To Do List, November 12-14, 2021
Join the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center for their annual Holiday Handcrafters Fair! This fantastic holiday tradition is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas shopping season!
This year's Handcrafters Fair features 30 vendors from in and around the Smoky Mountain Region, and all goods are handmade and/or handcrafted. There are no manufactured or "second quality" items to be found.

Tours of the museum galleries and historic village will also be available at the normal daily rate of $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $7 for children ages 5 to 16.
