The first annual North Carolina Ceramic Arts Festival took place September 23, 2017 in French Broad River Park. The festival featured over 20 ceramic artist from across North Carolina and the East coast. In addition to Ceramic Arts were food trucks including Doc Brown's BBQ, Purple People Feeders, and Sunshine Sammies, as well as local buskers providing a great outdoor festival atmosphere! 

For 2018 and 2019 we moved to Pack Square Park and had two wonderful years of ceramic arts, food, and demonstrations. Our numbers grew to over 50 ceramic artists and over 7,500 visitors through our gates!

Unfortunately, our show was cancelled for 2020 for the safety of everyone involved. That did not dampen our spirits however, we can't wait to see what 2021 brings!

We're so thankful to the SPONSORS that helped us make these events possible, and of course all of the wonderful artists who came to sell their products and share their talents.
