2017 Front Street Arts and Crafts Show in Dillsboro NC a Big Success

Wonderful blue skies, great entertainment and over 60 multi-talented artisans brought out more than 3,000 people to Front Street Arts and Crafts Show in Dillsboro NC on June 17th.

The first of three 2017 festivals produced by the Dillsboro Merchants Association, Front Street Arts and Crafts Show filled not only Front Street but also Church Street, increasing vendor participation thereby providing a much larger selection of arts and crafts. Dillsboro Merchants also reported an upturn in business during the festival.

The second 2017 Dillsboro festival, Summer Arts and Crafts Market, is scheduled for August 19th, with vendor booths booked to capacity. Vendor booths for ColorFest on October 7th, the third 2017  Association sponsored Festival are going fast.
