Join us for the Fine Art & Master Crafts Festival in the cool mountains where visitors and artists meet in beautiful downtown Banner Elk.

July and August temperatures are perfect in the mountains and this special setting nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains – with close proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway – is home of Grandfather Mountain, Linn Cove Viaduct – the last link to the Blue Ridge Parkway – Linville Caverns and other exciting destinations. Banner Elk is located in Avery County and is also home of the famous Woolly Worm Festival for 41 years.

The juried festival has been serving the community with a unique eclectic array of art for over 25 years and the combination of limited participants and proper atmosphere has contributed to the continued success of the event.
