The Tanasi Arts and Heritage Center serves as a cultural showcase, a regional arts and crafts center, a gathering place, and a vital connecting point for East Tennessee’s heritage. It is to this beautiful place that visitors come from all around to celebrate and experience first-hand the past, present, and future of the arts, crafts, music, drama, dance, literature, history and heritage, food, and natural beauty of the Tennessee Mountains and their people. The mission of the Tanasi center is to celebrate Appalachian culture and heritage while at the same time promoting regional entrepreneurship along with socioeconomic and environmental sustainability.
A great way to connect with the region's heritage is to attend an upcoming event. We host several events throughout the year that focus on various art mediums, culture, nature, and more. Register for an event today to see for yourself!
