Every year in the middle of August in Bolesławiec the Ceramics Festival is taking place. It lasts usually from Wednesday till Sunday. The main aim of these few days is to promote the ceramic ware that Bolesławiec is famous for. People from all around the world come to our city to admire the regional handicraft, make new business contacts or buy small and big gifts or even whole tableware. Additionally different artistic events are taking place during the festival to make this time unforgettable for the visitors.
The heart of the Ceramics Festival is definitely the Old Square in Bolesławiec. For five days it fills up with very unique atmosphere. This is the place where the ceramics fair takes place every year. The square around the city hall is full of people that go from one stand to another. In small wooden houses the manufacturers are presenting their clients the fruits of their hard work. They show new patterns and shapes. The shelves are weighed down with colourful cups, bowl and flower vases. In a garden surrounded by a small fence the decorators from the ceramic companies are painting the faces and arms of visitors with traditional stamps. Moreover during the pottery workshops you can also try to do your own ceramic coffee cup or plate. Additionally to the traditional pottery from Bolesławiec you can also find products of other handicraft manufacturers on the ceramic fair.
Every year a parade is also taking place in the Old Square, at the spearhead of which the members of the Ceramics Guild from Bolesławiec are going. Since we are also a member of it one person is also representing our company. All people from the guild are dressed in festive gowns. On the chest they wear an ornamental necklace made of ceramic tiles, which are the symbol of each manufacturer. The parade is also offering other attractions like oriental dance show, motorcycle jamboree or artistic performances.
The Ceramics Festival is celebrated in many different ways. Apart from the ceramic fair it also offers the visitors different artistic shows, events and concerts. There are of course also typical polish festival snacks such as cotton candy, waffle or bead with lard. For kids that are bored looking with their parents for the most beautiful tableware there is also an amusement park. As you can see everyone can find here something for himself. That’s why we warmly invite you to take part in the next Ceramics Festival in Bolesławiec.

If you want to talk about cooperation or you want to have a bigger choice and a little bit of calmness while you are shopping the best days to visit our stand are the first days of the festival.
