Canada’s largest outdoor ceramics market sees more than 100 ceramists from Québec and beyond come together for a total immersion into the world of ceramics, giving visitors a multisensory experience. This year, 1001 Pots runs July 7–Aug. 20, in which ceramists share their knowledge and artistic approaches to visitors daily.

Visitors can attend demonstrations, take part in courses and workshops, see musical and live art performances, and take a walk in the site’s garden.


Highlights of this year’s program include the Ball of Fireflies, the kickoff event where candles illuminate the site, accompanied by background music; Empty Bowls, where several ceramists make bowls then decorated by the public and sold in September during Val-David Market; and jazz afternoon, with jazz tunes complementing the market every weekend.

Visitors will also enjoy the Ikebana workshop, where visitors can delve into this type of Japanese floral art featuring a decorative natural structure with clean lines and a spiritual connotation. 1001 Pots also includes an outdoor film projection film by Bruno Boulianne on the ceramic artist Jean-Pierre Larocque. A discussion with the ceramist and director follows the screening. Tenor Nils Brown will also appear at the market to perform the greatest classic arias of 19th-century Neapolitan songs.
