On behalf of the Catawba Valley Pottery and Antiques Festival committee, thank you for your attendance each year. In accordance with North Carolina Executive Order 117, the CVPAF Preview Party (March 27, 2020) and Festival (March 28, 2020) have been canceled. Your attendance supports our efforts to provide much needed funding for exhibits, projects, and educational programs for both the Historical Association of Catawba County and the North Carolina Pottery Center. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together to continue our efforts to provide a festival dedicated to the present, history and future of the art of pottery.

Vendors and Preview Ticket holders will be receiving additional information in the coming weeks. Any questions should be directed to Executive Director, Bo Teague at 828-465-0383. 

In memory of our friend Dr. Bob Hart, a man with a vision to preserve the history for future generations.



For over 80 years, the Historical Association of Catawba County has preserved the objects, stories, and places that matter most to Catawbans.

As an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Association is funded primarily by individual donors. National foundations, periodic grant awards, and local municipalities also contribute to the daily financial operations of the Association.
