The Inaugural Faris A. Ashkar Memorial Craft Event

On behalf of the Board of Directors for the Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce, we are thrilled to introduce the inaugural Crafts & Ale festival event coming Fall 2018 to the West End Shopping Center in Farragut, TN. Featuring fine local crafts, a European-style beer garden with craft brewers and food vendors, we look forward to this community event showcasing local talent and the best “Craft” items in the area.
Crafters/Exhibitors are encouraged to apply for a vendor space!
In March 2018, the event was renamed “Crafts & Ale: The Faris A. Ashkar Memorial Craft Event” to honor longtime Farragut resident, chamber member and artisan, Faris A. Ashkar. Ashkar’s business, Artistic Designs, boasted custom woodworking from furniture to custom permanent installations to delicate wood jewelry. Chamber business members recall Ashkar’s incredible talent as well as his warm & kind spirit, describing him as “the brightest light in any room you walked into.”
We hope you will be a part of this event as a sponsor, exhibitor, vendor or attendee!

Located at the West End Shopping Center
