LOCAL MAKERS GATHERING IN NASHVILLE
Nashville tradition continues as artists prepare for the 44th Annual Spring Tennessee Craft Fair
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 21, 2015)– Nearly 200 of the region’s finest craft artists will come together in Centennial Park May 1, 2 and 3 for the 44th Annual Spring Tennessee Craft Fair.
As Tennessee Craft (formerly known as TACA) celebrates its fiftieth anniversary in 2015, this Nashville tradition endures as the premiere connecting point between artists and shoppers in Middle Tennessee.
Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. visitors will explore one-of-a-kind, handcrafted treasures. Function al and decorative pieces in clay, wood, glass, fiber and more will be available to purchase.
“Aside from the work itself, the best part of our fair is the artists,” Teri Alea, executive director of Tennessee Craft, said. “Artists are onsite all weekend sharing their work, stories and processes with shoppers. That connection between artists and fairgoers makes finding that special something even more memorable.
”Families will enjoy the activities found in our Publix Kids’ Tent, this year with a zero waste initiative. Thanks to community support, children of all ages will be inspired to create craft with recycled materials. Additionally, curious fairgoers can visit our Demonstration Tent and find the “next big thing” in our Emerging Makers Tent.
The Metropolitan Airport Authority will generously provide a free shuttle service for visitors. Shuttles will run in 15-minute loops from the HCA Parking Lots located on Park Plaza to the Tennessee Craft Fair on Saturday from 9 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. All guests are encouraged to use this service.
