Tried to get into a fall show this past fall. The lady that answered was very rude and hateful. NEVER AGAIN!

This is more a review of the building, which is fairly new. Large long halls with high ceilings make this seem uncrowded when it actually is. Main hall was plenty large for the Quartet singing, which went from about 5 pm - 11:30 pm each night. Restrooms are near the back and up & down the hallways, so if you... More

We came to see the craftsmen fair and had a great time. Hopefully we will be able to come back next year better prepared to travel home with more items.

This Convention Center is done perfectly for the location that it sits in. Lots of wood with lots of detail. Went to the Craftsman Fair the week of Thanksgiving along with the Christmas Tree Show.

Our group of 8 visits the Gatlinburg area every year to attend the Gaither's Family Fest at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. The venue is always clean, temperature controlled, and accommodating. There are plenty of restrooms and the hallways are roomy. At the Gaither concert, it seats 6,000. It's right on the main drag through Gatlinburg so very convenient for walkers... More

The Gatlinburg Convention Center is a great meeting and or activities center. In the Fall, our favorite event is the Mountain Crafters Show. It's like bringing all the crafters from the area into one meeting place. The facility itself is large, clean and well maintained. The restrooms are clean and well maintained. For a large public facility, that's a big... More

I attended the Craftsman Show here and the venue is nice and comfortable. The show provided strategically placed chairs to sit and rest throughout the show. Restrooms are conveniently located throughout the facility as well. I enjoyed the show and the venue.

A beautiful convention center in the heart of Gatlinburg. We visited the Craftsmen's Fair and saw some wonderful artisans including glass blowing, someone playing the hammer dulcimer, carvings, ceramics... Something for everyone! Clean restrooms.
