The artisans will show off a wide variety of ceramics. There will be everyday items, garden objects and decorations. Art items include jewelry made of different potter’s clay, art sculptures, vases, dishes and garden tables with ceramic mosaics.

The European Culture Park Bliesbruck-Reinheim will present excavation findings and offer pottery for children.


Organizers emphasize that all products being offered are unique items. Visitors should have the opportunity to check out items, get advice, compare and buy.

Saarpfalz-Touristik and the city of Homburg want to make visitors aware of other local highlights such as the monthly flea market, the bread market in summer and the country market in fall.

Local stores and the office of arts will pass out flyers of exhibitors and a map.

The parking garage in the center will be open on both days.
