The “Agri-Fest” and “Pottery Comes to Town” festivals are scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 27, in Cleveland.

Potters from across the Southeast will be in attendance, said Mark Johnson, president of the White County Historical Society, which is co-sponsoring the event with the White County Chamber of Commerce.

“White County is home to the famous Meaders family potters, and they will be well represented, along with many others,” Johnson said.

Collectible pottery will be displayed along with new items from the region’s folk potters.

“This will be an opportunity to meet some of the legends of the craft,” Johnson said.

Pottery Comes to Town will be in the big parking lot on the south side of Cleveland’s square.

The Agri-Fest portion will feature a farm animal display of alpacas, cows and goats in the newly open Freedom Park.

Children may participate in the pumpkin-decorating and face-painting events or go on jumpy rides. Adults can wander among the more than 50 arts and crafts booths or listen to the bluegrass, country and gospel groups set to begin performing at 9:30 a.m.

The musical lineup includes The Front Porch Gliders, Evergreen, Mike Pardue and Wealthy Guardian.
