Press Release from the Historical Association of Catawba Valley

Annual Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Festival Slated for Spring 2019

HICKORY, NC – January 4, 2019 – Today, the Historical Association of Catawba County announced that the 22nd annual Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Festival (CVP&AF) will take place Saturday, March 23, at the Hickory Metro Convention Center. This acclaimed event brings together 110 potters and vendors from across the southeast to exhibit and sell their unique artistry and craftsmanship. 

Saturday’s festival also includes live demonstrations and a special lecture and exhibit: “Pots Around the World” presented by Dr. John Burrison, author of Global Clay: Themes of the World Ceramic Traditions. The exhibit will span some 4,000 years of ceramic history, from a Neolithic Chinese jar to a German Bellarmine to a Brazilian sculpture of St. Francis. His lecture and slide presentation will reflect the extraordinary diversity of world pottery. The lecture is at 11:00 a.m. and is included in the Saturday ticket price. 

The CVP&AF Steering Committee is excited to announce a “facelift” to the always well-attended Friday Night Preview Party on March 22nd from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Hickory Metro Convention Center. The event will feature an updated Southern Fare menu, cash bar, and live music. The Preview Party is the primary fundraiser for the Festival and provides guests with the opportunity to purchase festival items early, time to interact with vendors, and a fun night of great food and entertainment. Again, all Preview Party ticket buyers will be entered in a drawing for a $200 gift certificate to be used on Saturday at the festival. To be eligible, tickets must be purchased by the March 15 deadline. The raffle winner will be announced during Friday’s event.

About the Catawba Valley Pottery & Antiques Festival

The CVPA&F began in 1998 with a mission to showcase the history of Catawba Valley alkaline glazed stoneware and the potters who are committed to producing this traditional utilitarian ware. Development and growth have allowed the festival to include potters from across the state and the South, as well as dealers offering historical pottery and antiques, providing a context for understanding the history and use of pottery in the South. The Festival is a non-profit event benefiting the Historical Association of Catawba County in Newton, and the North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove. More than $500,000 has been donated to the institutions over the past 18 years.
