17th Annual “Come to Leicester” Artist Studio Tour
For the 17th year in a row, artists in this small community will open their studios to the public for the annual Come to Leicester Studio Tour. This free, self-guided event is held every third weekend in August, with this year’s tour dates being August 20 and 21, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Visitors choose their own tour stops using a printed brochure with a full-color map of the area, with bold signs directing to the individual studios. The tour route travels through some of the most scenic rural countryside in Western North Carolina. The variety of arts and crafts on the tour includes brooms, pottery, paintings, iron work, jewelry, fiber, stained glass, mosaic, enamel, and mixed media. Visit our website to print a map.
