The Midnight Plowboys

Celebrating Roots Music of the Southern Mountains... & Beyond!

Back to All Events

Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands

For four days each July and October, the US Cellular Center in Asheville, NC comes alive with fine traditional and contemporary crafts. Nearly 200 craftspeople fill the two levels of the center selling their works of clay, fiber, glass, leather, metal, mixed media, natural materials, paper, wood and jewelry.

Beginning on Friday during each Craft Fair, mountain musicians perform live on the arena stage. Since the first fair in Gatlinburg in 1948, the music of the area has been woven into the fabric of the Craft Fair experience. From old time to bluegrass, this tradition is kept alive today. The Midnight Plowboys will take the stage at 11:00 AM  on Sunday July 23!
