While visiting with members of the Arts and Crafts Community, you will have the chance to see woodcarving, candle making, pottery, art galleries and plenty of other fine art forms. This free craft show is held at the Gatlinburg Convention Center in downtown Gatlinburg and is scheduled for the days leading up to Easter.

This event is open to anyone who wants to participate, so remember to bring your fishing gear with you while on vacation! The Smoky Mountain Trout Tournament takes place in early April along the west prong of the Little Pigeon River from the National Park boundary in Gatlinburg, downstream to the Sevierville City Park bridge, and along its tributaries of Roaring Fork, LeConte Creek and Dudley Creek.
