Sponsored by Food Lion Feeds and the CRVA (Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority), Empty Bowls is an event designed to raise awareness and funds in our battle to end hunger in the Metrolina region. Potters of all ages, skill levels and approaches to clay will donate hundreds of handmade ceramic bowls. The bowl then serves as a reminder that someone's bowl is always empty and that we need to continue our efforts to end hunger in our community. For the past several years this event has sold out. The public is invited to attend this wonderful event for just $40 per person. Your ticket purchase includes:


    • - A simple lunch which will include a soup, a variety of sandwiches and drinks
    • - A handcrafted bowl of your choice
    • - A free GoPlaySave Charlotte Coupon Book (value $30).

New VIP tickets (limited available)! For $65 you receive all the benefits listed above, plus early entrance into the event at 11:00 a.m.

Event Includes: a pottery demonstration by Clayworks, silent auction, music, food and over 500 pottery bowls to choose from!
