New exhibits in the second-floor gallery throughout the year feature folk and fine art, textiles, photography, and historical content. KFAC also has a gift shop offering original folk art, crafts, and more.

KFAC hosts or sponsors cultural events and activities, including the Appalachian Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair, held on the first Saturday in December each year.
