​This is the post that we had hoped not to make again this year. In determining whether to move forward with the festival, we have consulted with the Cleveland County Public Health Center about the local metrics and trends of COVID-19. Unfortunately, the highly contagious Delta variant, combined with our county’s low vaccination rate, has continued to spread rapidly through Cleveland County and organizations are being urged to cancel large gatherings such as the Pottery Festival.

After much deliberation the Cleveland C​​ounty Arts Council Board of Directors and the Carolina Pottery Festival Board have made the difficult decision to cancel the festival this year out of an abundance of caution and deep concern for the health and safety of all.

Go ahead and mark your calendar for next year – Sat. Nov. 5, 2022 – Carolina Pottery Festival!

Stay safe and healthy and we’ll see you next year!
