DILLSBORO — The quaint village of Dillsboro will be transformed into an outdoor art market place during the annual Front Street Arts & Crafts Show from 10 a.m.-4 p.m Saturday, July 17.

Browse handmade arts and crafts from over 40 alongside a festive street fair with live music throughout the day and food trucks.

Vendors will be selling soaps, baskets, pottery, jewelry, bird houses, paintings and art of all kinds. All artisans have a story, and as you stroll along Front Street’s vendors and merchants, ask them to share their passion with you.

The entertainment line-up for the day includes:

• 11 a.m.: J. Creek Cloggers, a high-energy dance team based out of Haywood County, will dance on the street. This group of dancers are keeping alive the old mountain tradition of clogging, audience participation square dances, and broom dances.
