Salad Days

Celebrate 2019 Salad Days at Watershed on July 13!


2019 Salad Days plate by Dehmie Dehmlow

On the second Saturday of July each year, join hundreds of visitors who come to the Watershed campus for a memorable picnic—and carry home handcrafted ceramic plates as souvenirs of this special day. The plates are created by a dedicated artist-in-residence who spends a season at Watershed making 550 plates for the festival.

After choosing your favorite plate, load it up with a delicious array of locally sourced salads—all prepared by area restaurants and Watershed’s chefs. In addition to the picnic lunch, Salad Days features live music, artist demos, a ceramics exhibition, and a pottery sale of handmade ceramics made by Watershed artists from around the country.


Salad Days tickets are $40 and include lunch and a handmade plate. Children five and under may attend for free, but do not receive a plate.  A limited number of tickets are available online and many more will be available to purchase at the event.
