Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival: The Largest Arts Festival in Mississippi and the Gulf Coast!

Peter Anderson Festival Logo

The Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival was created to honor master potter, Peter Anderson, original potter of Shearwater Pottery, founded in 1928, and to celebrate the arts community. The festival aids in the economic development and growth of what has become Ocean Springs today. The festival is presented by Blue Moon via F.E.B. Distributing.

We are currently planning for this year’s festival and are excited about all the activities associated with this festival. We are honored to have Blue Moon as our “presenting sponsor” once again this year.
