2020 has been a strange and unpredictable year, but we remain hopeful you will be able to join us for the 42nd Annual Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival!

Event organizers are following local governance and CDC guidelines related to COVID-19. While these guidelines may change in coming days, that remains beyond prediction as of the time of this update. Festival organizers are currently focused on planning for a quality event on November 7 & 8, 2020 (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.) in downtown Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

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.

While we understand that the 2020 Festival will certainly be different than years past, we believe loyal patrons should have the opportunity to support the Festival and continue without interruption their collection of unique Festival merchandise.

As such, we are offering this year’s one-of-a-kind T-shirts and sweatshirts as well as official Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival caps through a variety of options.


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 Chamber of Commerce (masks required!) to retrieve it: 1000 Washington Ave. (9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday or 9 a.m.-Noon Saturday)



Want to pick up your Festival swag from the comfort and safety of your car? Bring your cash to Shearwater Pottery at

We will also continue our pre-sale tradition (Cash and Credit accepted) in these retail outlets throughout Ocean Springs:

2020 may be a year like no other, but we believe in the power of our community and Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival fans to remain invested in supporting the arts and artists!
