Now in its 20th year, the American Pottery Festival brings talented artists from around the country to the Northern Clay Center. During the three-day celebration, there will be panel talks from visiting artists, gala parties with bubbly and appetizers, hands-on workshops for budding artists, and gallery tours exploring the space’s current exhibits, including a McKnight fellowship showcase. Perhaps the most highly attended event on the schedule is the fest’s ongoing sale, which boasts a mind-boggling variety of pieces—mugs, sculptures, plates, teapots—available for purchase. Whatever your aesthetic—Americana rustic, clean and modern, whimsical, traditional Asian style—you’ll discover something to match. Find the complete schedule of events at
