 Back by popular demand, the Blount County Alumni Association presents the Harvest Crafts Festival.  This annual Homecoming weekend event brings some of the most talented local and not-so-local crafters to show their wares to the Maryville College Homecoming crowd.  Be sure to make time to visit the craft fair for your holiday shopping - and even some incredible home-baked items perfect for the season!

If interested in being a vendor at the Harvest Craft Festival, we welcome the application.  Spaces are still available.
