The Art of ColorFest Comes to Dillsboro, NC- 8th Annual Juried Fine Arts & Crafts Fair

As the blazing colors of autumn fall on the Blue Ridge Mountains, the town of Dillsboro, NC once again will host the annual ColorFest, now eight years old.  This popular Dillsboro Fine Arts & Crafts Fair will be held on October 1, 2016 from 10am until 4pm.  The setting for the fair is the walk-about, old railroad town of Dillsboro, which flourishes with authentic works of the hand in studios and galleries—pottery, weaving, painting, sewing and more. Drawn by the town’s old-fashioned charm and gracious hospitality, visitors are many times surprised by not only the art, but by the skill tucked away in these mountains.  Thus, this 128-year-old town, located just a few miles off of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, is a perfect place to showcase authentic works of the hand in the fair appropriately named, ColorFest.
