Every two years, in odd-numbered years, an exciting thing happens in western North Carolina. Photographers from all over the country come to the Asheville region to have the most fun a photographer can have in the Southeast.

Smoky Mountain Foto Fest features field trips, workshops, and programs covering a wide range of photography subjects and techniques. Speakers from across the country participate in the event, which occurs around the second weekend of September.
