Tucked away among the rolling hills of Tennessee lies the historic town of Bell Buckle. The quaint little town celebrates the third weekend in October every year with an event as colorful as the autumn leaves. Eager shoppers bursting with excitement come to explore and find the one of kind items only this premier show offers. The 41st year of this perennial fall favorite will be held the weekend of October 21st and 22nd showcasing an array of new and returning artists sure to please and impress.
Once again voted the Number One Art & Craft Show in middle Tennessee, the Webb School Art & Craft Show satisfies the most finicky shopper with over 100 juried artists and crafters. There will be live demonstrations by chainsaw artists who can transform a piece of ordinary wood into a jaw dropping sculpture, yarn weaving by Aplaca Farms, basket weaving, and much more. Visitors come away with more than just a gift item; they come away with a story.
A food court featuring foods from around the world is located on the Webb Show grounds with live music throughout the weekend. Parking is easy with the athletic fields open making easy access in and out of town as well as a straight walk in to the Webb Show.
The long standing juried Webb Show is in the center of all the action that takes place in town featuring a field of artistic talent that is sure to please and impress. The featured Show is held on the second block of Maple Street in the old “Sawney” lot that backs up to the Webb School. Though the juried Webb Art & Craft Show is the heartbeat and the soul of the town, there are other booths throughout the town during the weekend. Traditional favorites are the Downtown Show behind the stores at the stage area and the Maple Street Show near the Webb Road intersection.
This Show has grown to such proportions in recent years that the Bell Buckle Chamber of Commerce is putting up a map on their Facebook page to show visitors the best places to park as well as locations for handicap parking, porta toilets, first aid stations, and so forth. Please be sure to reference the Bell Buckle Chamber Facebook page or visit www.bellbucklechamber.com to help you plan your day as well as to help navigate through some of the traffic that also comes with the weekend. The city streets will be closed to traffic but open for fun all weekend!
Grab a bag of kettle corn and stroll the hundreds of booths featuring fanciful and fun wares or sophisticated and refined art. Thousands of visitors are enticed to return to the show every year because it is just what a Fall Festival should be – everything!
Bell Buckle, Tennessee – Close to home, but a world away.
