T.A.C.A. Craft Fair at Centennial Park

Crafty Business
Our state has a rich and varied heritage as a home for gifted craft artists second to none. That history will be celebrated all weekend with the 31st annual Tennessee Association of Craft Artists (TACA) Fall Craft Fair. Anyone with the slightest interest in anything from weaving and papermaking to woodturning, stained glass, carving and other examples of crafts will see spectacular creations from more than 200 local and regional artists. A special feature of this year’s event will be the 2009 Governor’s Award being presented to the Macon Family of Newberry & Sons Chairs. They have turned making chairs into an art form, utilizing original designs that date back 150 years through multiple generations of Newberry family members. They also still heavily rely on timber from their own land and hand tools as much as modern devices and electric power tools. There will be exhibitors from 33 states (plus Canada) at the TACA Fall Crafts Fair, where there will also be a kid’s booth.
Sept. 25-27, 2009
