Don't miss the Annual Holiday Festival at Tennessee Tech University's Appalachian Center for Craft, slated for the weekend following Thanksgiving, Nov. 26, 27 and 28 (Friday-Sunday). The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and admission is free.

Discover unique treasures while browsing contemporary and traditional fine craft pieces including blown glass, jewelry, pottery, quilts, turned wood vessels, wall hangings, scarves, candles, ornaments, and more, all available in The Gallery. Shop in a relaxing atmosphere while sipping spiced cider and listening to acoustic guitarist Rob Ring. Gift wrapping is free with purchase, and gift cards are also available.

The Gallery offers a range of stunning, one-of-a-kind items to suit any gift-giving budget. Plus, TTU employees with a valid Eagle Card receive a 10 percent discount for purchases in the Craft Center's Gallery during the festival and throughout the year.

While shopping, experience numerous craft demonstrations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day and explore the showcase exhibitions. Relax and unwind with a stop in the Walkway Café, where visitors can dine on hearty homemade soups, deli sandwiches, and tempting desserts from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the festival.

The Appalachian Center for Craft is conveniently located approximately six miles from Interstate 40, Exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). Go south on Highway 56 and turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads directly to the Craft Center.
