We will be holding the Spring 2023 Lake Lure Arts & Crafts Festival on Saturday, May 13, 2023 (from 10 am to 5 pm) and Sunday, May 14, 2023 (from 10 am to 4 pm)

And for those farsighted folks, we plan to hold the 2023 Fall Lake Lure Arts & Crafts Festival on Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22. 

The Festival raises funds to support Hickory Nut Gorge Outreach. The Outreach is a food pantry (and more). It is dedicated to eliminating hunger in our community and helping the needy. Please take a look at our website for more information.

While the proceeds from the Festival go to support Hickory Nut Gorge Outreach, the Festival is run by the Lake Lure Arts & Crafts Festival Coordinating Committee. The folks who answer the phone and respond to email inquiries at Hickory Nut Gorge Outreach do not have any information about the Festival. Please do not waste their or your time by asking questions there. Please do ask your questions via the email address

The Spring 2023 Lake Lure Arts & Crafts Festival Coordinating Committee has received a report that someone is trying to sell vendor spots by entering vendor information at https// The email address is This appears to be a scam but could be simple confusion. In any case, we want to clarify our process. First, the Festival has a full complement of vendors; there are no more spaces for vendors. Second, if there were open spaces for vendors, the only place to apply for those spaces online would be at our website; that website would take you directly to PayPal (and not to a "PayPal email address). Third, the only email address that we use is Please do not be taken in by this or any other scam.
