October 9 - October 10, 2010


39th Annual Meriwether Lewis Arts and Crafts Fair

For the past 39 years, the Maury County Arts Guild has produced the Meriwether Lewis Arts & Crafts Fair in cooperation with the National Park Service. The fair is held at the Meriwether Lewis National historic area on the Natchez Trace Parkway near Hohenwald. Its purpose is to provide local and regional artists an opportunity to exhibit and sell quality handicrafts and to promote the cultural heritage of the region. The fair is also in commemoration of the famed explorer, Meriwether Lewis, who s buried in the park.

Crafters and artisans demonstrate, display and sell their wares — everything from pottery to quilts, stained glass to wood crafts, leather to oil paintings and baskets to ironworks. Live music will be performed throughout the event. Foods available include fried pies, blooming onions, apple fritters, homemade fudge, funnel cakes, curly potatoes, white beans and cornbread, Polish sausage, Philly cheese-steak sandwiches, hamburgers, fries, barbecue, ice cold lemonade and iced tea.
