About the Festival
Unicoi Lodge, Helen Arts & Heritage Center, and Sautee Nacoochee Center are partnering to create the 2021 WinterFest Arts Tour. This festival will include 145 artists in 3 locations over 2 days for 1 ticket price.
Because of COVID-19, coach service to the three WinterFest venues will not be offered in 2021.
Watch live art demonstrations throughout the weekend as artists actively create and bring to life new and exciting pieces. Pottery, painting, jewelry, fused glass, fiber art are just a few of the types of artwork that will be available at the festivals. Guests may register for drawings held throughout the weekend at each location for opportunities to win original art and fine craft prizes, all donated by participating artisans.
There is no charge for the festival at each venue, but a multi-part Grand Prize ticket is available to purchase. When the ticket is stamped at each location, the ticket holder is eligible to enter a drawing for one of three grand prizes offered by each venue valued at $250 and above. The Grand Prizes represent the three organizations and support our local arts community. Tickets may be purchased ahead of time or the weekend of WinterFest.
Free parking is available at Unicoi State Park and Lodge and Sautee Nacoochee Cultural Center. Because of COVID-19, coach service to the three WinterFest venues will not be offered in 2021.
WinterFest will follow CDC and OSHA COVID-19 Guidelines for Phase 2 Opening (June 1, 2020) as defined by the State of Georgia.
