Surround yourself with North Carolina’s ongoing craft traditions this Saturday at the 22nd Annual Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Festival! The event brings in artisans from across the state to exhibit their beautiful stoneware, textiles furniture, baskets, and more. The non-profit event benefits the Catawba County Historical Association and the North Carolina Pottery Center.
When and Where
The main event begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 23 and lasts until 5 p.m. It will be held at the Hickory Metro Convention Center, located at 1960 13th Av. Drive SE, Hickory, NC 28602. Admission is $6 for adults and $2 for children 12 years old and under. The Friday Night Preview Party requires tickets to be purchased online in advance for $45.
What to Expect
On Saturday, over 100 vendors will offer their handmade wares, demonstrating the continuation of a deep-rooted North Carolina craft. While technique and style vary from artist to artist, you’ll see the pottery made just as it has been for generations. From wheel to kiln, the glazed earthenware on display represents a genuine folk tradition that has survived through the Industrial Revolution and modern convenience. You’ll find elegant vases, colorful accent pieces, jovial jugs faces, contemporary coffee mugs, and more.
Don’t miss the preview party on Friday night, where you may enjoy live music, classic Southern food, a cash bar with two complimentary drinks, an early buying opportunity, and even a chance at winning a $200 shopping spree for the next day.
