Since 1988 Asheville has been known as the Arts and Crafts capitol of the South. It was in that year we combined Asheville’s Arts and Crafts heritage, dating back to Biltmore Estate Industries in 1901, with the first National Arts and Crafts Conference and Shows.
On February 16-18 we anticipate more than 2500 people from across the United States, Canada and England, as well as throughout Asheville and Western North Carolina, will converge on the Omni Grove Park Inn for the 31st National Arts and Crafts Conference and Shows, where more than 100 antiques dealers, artists and artisans will have works for sale.
The shows are open to the public and take place from 1:00-6:00pm on Saturday, February 16; noon-6:00pm on Sunday, February 17; and 11:00am-4:00pm on Sunday, February 18. The cost is $10 for adults; $5 for students. Outdoor parking is free, as well as three hours in the hotel garages.
