We are so excited to bring the AFA Convention and FIA MarketPlace back to the great city of Chattanooga, TN! Tucked in the Smoky Mountains and nestled along the beautiful meandering Tennessee River, there is an extensive greenway system which includes 5 miles of constructed riverwalk beginning downtown and meandering through the historic art district and several parks. The city supports a downtown shuttle fleet of zero-emission electric buses - manufactured here in Chattanooga - for visitors to get out and explore.
Attractions such as the Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Civil War battlefield sites, the African American Museum, and the Appalachian Trail bring thousands of people to the area. There are dining options galore from local diners and craft breweries to 5-star restaurants!
