The 2018 Helen Winter Arts Festival is an indoor arts & crafts marketplace featuring artists and fine craftsmen from across Northeast Georgia. Admission is free and the public is invited. Stick around and enjoy our 1st Annual Soup Cookoff on Saturday, February 17 at 5:00 pm.


HAHC is partnering with the Sautee Nacoochee Center and Unicoi State Park & Lodge for the 2018 WinterFest: Arts & Coach Tour. 150 artists located at three locations within 10 miles of one another, with optional coach service, create the most exciting weekend of creativity and hand-crafted beauty to be found.

Spend a day at one location or hop on a coach to tour multiple locations. Live demonstrations will be offered throughout the two-day festival. Drawings to win original art and fine craft prizes will be done through the weekend.

Lodging is available at Unicoi State Park & Lodge and at many locations in and around Helen. Dining is offered in Sautee Nacoochee, Helen and at the Unicoi Lodge Restaurant.

Admission is FREE to the public. Coach tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased at https://goo.gl/wRvpWz
