CELEBRATION OF SEAGROVE POTTERS, NOV. 17-19, 2017


  • Friday Nov 17th,  Gala 6-9PM - Catered Reception, Live Music, Collaborative Auction
  • Saturday Nov. 18th 9 - 5PM
  • Sunday Nov. 19th 10-4PM

Please join us, for our 10th Annual show, held indoors at Luck's Cannery. Free parking, food trucks, demonstrations and lots of pottery to choose from. Celebration in Fall is an indoor event where we come together at one location and create an atmosphere where you can immerse yourself with more pottery than one can conceive.

Always the weekend before Thanksgiving, our event starts on Friday with a Gala Auction and continues on Saturday and Sunday. Shopping begins when the doors open Friday night and doesn’t stop until we all move out on Sunday. Don’t forget the shops are open too! Venture out! We don’t want you to miss a thing. With just under 100 pottery shops, there is no chance of you to leaving Seagrove without finding that special treasure for yourself or someone else. We hope you’ll have a grand experience and plan to come back time and time again.


PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN JULY
