Recently voted #1 Town for Craft Lovers, Seagrove is located in central North Carolina, making it the perfect day trip destination. It is the largest community of potters, with the longest continuous history of pottery making in the United States.  More than 100 ceramic artists call Seagrove home.

The Celebration of Seagrove Potters is the one time of year that the majority of the Seagrove ceramic artists gather under one roof to showcase their work together.  The Celebration always takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving at the Historic Luck’s Cannery in Seagrove.

This premier event is a collector’s paradise of exceptional art pieces, pottery for your home, and much more.  Festivities kick off Friday night with a Gala, live auction, and potters market.  Enjoy an evening full of entertainment featuring a live 15-piece jazz band, food, craft beer, and wine.  Two or more Seagrove artists work together to create collaborative pieces for the live auction. Be the first to bid on this year’s 10th anniversary commemorative platter, signed by the Seagrove potters.
