We cannot wait for you to join us in beautiful Downtown Ocean Springs at the 45th Annual Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival on November 4 & 5, 2023!

The Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival was created more than 40 years ago to honor Master Potter Peter Anderson–the original potter at Shearwater Pottery–and to celebrate and support the vibrant arts community in Ocean Springs. Since then, the Festival has become a much-anticipated tradition that draws art aficionados and loyal attendees from around the U.S. each and every year.

In addition to apparel, we’ve expanded our official merchandise line to include additional products, so be sure to check those out. For your convenience, we will be offering multiple ways to secure your official Festival merchandise!


Supporters may order online via our official store and have their Festival merchandise shipped via USPS Priority Mail to their doorstep.

To further accommodate local Festival supporters, we have added a free local pickup option with no shipping charges. Just complete your order online and pick up in Ocean Springs after your order is fulfilled.

At checkout, opt for local pickup. We will notify you when your order is ready, and you can pop into the Ocean Springs Visitors Center to retrieve it: 1000 Washington Ave. (9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday or 9 a.m.-Noon Saturday)
