Clay Fest, Local Clay's ceramic show and sale, is usually held each year in October.
The 25th annual Clay Fest will be held the weekend of October 13 - 15th, 2023 at the Lane County Fair Grounds. Show hours are Friday 5:00pm-8:00pm, Saturday 10:00am-6:00pm, and Sunday 11:00am-5:00pm. The show and sale will include work by nearly 70 local and regional clay artists.
Clay Fest draws artists from all over Oregon. Oregon is nationally known for the for the quality of ceramic art produced here. This is a great opportunity buy unique handmade pieces directly from the artists who make the work. Plus, all the money goes back into the community.
Clay Fest is planned and run by the artists who participate in the show. A small percentage of the proceeds is used to fund the show, the rest goes directly to the artists and to charity. The show is a fund raiser for Local Clay and its Clay in Education program, which provides funding for ceramic activities in local schools.
Clay In Motion
It's amazing how clay - the common medium to all - can be made to take on so many diverse forms. There is truly something for everyone's taste here - some quite unique and decorative; others more functional and useful in a hundred different ways. Jewelry, tiles, plates, cups and bowls in great variety, whimsical little animal forms, wall hangings, pots for plants, vases for flowers, and sculptures to stand out in your home, the assortment covers the entire gamut from primitive to exotic. The imaginations of the participating ceramic artists know no limit.
