The Big Crafty revives the tradition of the community bazaar, a lively celebration of handmade commerce, featuring the most exciting artists and crafters around. Our fun-for-all-ages events are held twice annually in the heart of beautiful Asheville, NC. Our guiding principle is that supporting creative venturers makes for a stronger community, and our aim is to make doing so fun.
We’re so grateful to have been voted Best Arts/Crafts Fair in the annual Mountain Xpress readers’ poll every year since we began in 2008.
We extend warm welcome to our rich pageant of basement and backyard artists, our juried prize-winners, and those who delight in them.
We’re grateful for the hearty support of the Western NC community, and in particular the Asheville Area Arts Council, the City of Asheville, and Asheville Art Museum, for their support of our work and our fun.
The Big Crafty supports the creative community in all its go-for-broke, full-of-heart, boundary-pushing, human-scale, all-in, full-tilt glory. Make the world you need

Since 1998, the Lavender Festival has grown larger and more popular each year. Thousands of people visit the festival in Historic Jackson Square in Oak Ridge each year to see a variety of regional vendors whose goal is to celebrate health, herbs, and the environment. The Lavender Festival is scheduled for the third weekend in June, at the peak season for the herb it celebrates.
From homemade jams to fine art, you can enjoy the sounds of music floating through the square from the large Festival Tent, as well as demonstrations and presentations throughout the day.
