Be a part of the 2016 juried CLAYfest Market. Last year’s festival attracted close to 3,500 people. We hope to increase attendance via widespread marketing efforts throughout the southwest region with a focus on the Silver City drive markets.
We invite artists and entrepreneurs to offer decorative and utilitarian ceramics and other clay-related items for sale on Saturday of the CLAY Festival weekend, July 30, 2016.
