NO Sanford Pottery Festival in 2013

Future events to be announced

Sanford and local potteries are worth a visit year-round!

The Sanford Pottery Festival has been cancelled indefinitely.

New SPF pottery events to be held in Sanford and surrounding communities will be announced on our website and via email at a later date.

I deeply appreciate the support of the thousands of people living in Sanford and Lee County who attended the Sanford Pottery Festival and the tens of thousands of people drawn from all over North Carolina and beyond.

The festival, like other significant artistic draws here, enjoyed tremendous support from local businesses and corporations. Sanford, truly, is "well-centered." It was a pleasure and a privilege that the Sanford Pottery Festival was able to provide a vehicle to promote all that our community has to offer.

Please take a few moments to scan the existing website. The Temple Theatre still produces great shows. Historic Downtown Sanford, Depot Park, Old Mill Crank Up and the Railroad House are worth a visit. We have wonderful (and one HUGE) antique shop downtown, plenty of restaurants, coffee houses and potteries that are open year-round.

In the meantime, I will work to develop events outside Sanford to promote tourism to our community throughout the year.

Future events will be announced as well as details of the original Seagrove Pottery Festival……

When the local political leadership wishes to combine great pottery events in Sanford with promoting year-round all that Sanford and Lee County have to offer, we should talk.
