The National Carousel Fine Craft Show honors the handcrafted legacy of the amazing Kingsport Carousel. Fine Craft Exhibitors will show and sell works of heirloom quality in a wide variety of media including wood, photography, jewelry, glass, furniture, fiber, and clay.
Talks and demonstrations are sprinkled throughout the 3 day festival that begins with a Preview Party inviting culinary and music artistry to share the stage. The fine art and craft exhibitors are from Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana.
The Show begins with the Friday evening Preview Party. Tickets to the Preview Party are $35 and also include admission Saturday and Sunday. While you shop enjoy Farm to Table Tastes featuring locally sourced foods prepared by The Main Street Pizza Company and River Creek Farms. Craft Brews and a cash bar will also be available. Friday night will also feature the music by Gerald Sheppard – master maker of guitars and an accomplished musician. Gerald has been making fine guitars for serious musicians since 1993 and has two released CDs: In the Mornin’ and Never Reaching the End.
Saturday and Sunday the show and sale continue and will feature many talks/demos including Glass Blowing and a round-up of the region’s favorite food trucks. Funds raised by this event will support the programs of Engage Kingsport which include public art programs, including the Kingsport Carousel, and economic development and community engagement through the arts. On Saturday and Sunday the $3 day pass is available at the door. More information and tickets to the Preview Party are available by calling 423-392-8414 or visiting www.EngageKingsport.com.
