Tickets are $30 for lunch and $35 for dinner. You may reserve tickets by calling Arrowmont, 865.436.5860 or stopping by 556 Parkway, Gatlinburg.

Souper Bowl was created fifteen years ago out of the Arrowmont staff’s desire to help the community by using their skills. Sharing a meal is the perfect opportunity to connect with community and use craft as a way to support the United Way of Sevier County.
Bill May, Arrowmont Executive Director, has purchased at least one bowl at every Souper Bowl since its founding. He invites every member of the community to attend. “Join us for this relaxed casual gathering. All are welcome and encouraged to bring family and friends to participate knowing that the cost of your meal is going towards creating meaningful change and improving life for many of our fellow citizens by supporting United Way of Sevier County.”
One of the highlights of Souper Bowl is choosing your bowl. Bowls are handcrafted by local artists, Arrowmont students, instructors, staff and volunteers. Each bowl is unique in design, size, shape and color and is a treasure to add to any collection. Rebecca Buglio, Arrowmont Studio Manager and coordinator of bowl production said, “Souper Bowl is designed to benefit our community and extending opportunities for community members to get involved is essential to its success.”
The menu is as interesting and varied as the bowls with soups, breads and cookies created by Arrowmont’s talented chef and staff. Choose from: Jeff’s five alarm chili; Patsy’s potato leek soup; Noah’s surprise soup; Anne’s shrimp curry; and Julia’s family recipe for chicken noodle soup or try them all. Patsy Henry, Arrowmont’s renowned baker for over 40 years, makes cookies and chocolate buttermilk cake for dessert and homemade yeast bread and cornbread.
Art raffle tickets are offered at $5 each. You may win a handmade art object, made by a local artist or one of Arrowmont’s highly skilled instructors. Raffle items include baskets, mugs, the Arrowmont cookbook, and jewelry. These items are great for gifts for yourself or friends.
Arrowmont and United Way partner for this celebration of food, craft and fellowship. Amy Harper, Executive Director of United Way said, “We are grateful to Arrowmont for this unique event that celebrates the artistic heritage of our community and supports both the United Way and our local community partners. It’s amazing to see all of the wonderful handcrafted bowls one can select from to own, that have been created by Arrowmont students and local artisans.”
United Way of Sevier County focuses on improving lives by involving communities in creating lasting positive change. United Way improves lives by mobilizing the power of Sevier County citizens to improve education, income, and health care.
