Potters and pottery-buyers alike look forward to this annual event, and this year kids can enjoy it, too. A hands-on arts station will give them the chance to do their own thing with clay. DeSales Corner, where Madison Road begins and Woodburn crosses, will be alive with potters and their wares, both functional and decorative, and also with the tools and supplies needed to practice the craft.

A ceramic vase by artist Terri Kern will be raffled off (tickets: 1 for $1; 6 for $5) and ceramic pieces created by Clay Alliance members will be given away hourly from the Clay Alliance booth. The Spring Pottery Fair, now in its 12th year, will take place 11 a.m.-5 p.m. rain or shine, with Jake Speed and the Freddies adding music to the mix from noon to 3 p.m. More information: 513-961-2728.

i've noticed many city beat articles don't cite the date of an event when discussing hours and location.  perhaps this is a function of inefficient "translation" from hard copy to web site, but it is frustrating to try to figure out what day an event is.  i've given up more than once trying to figure it out.  just some constructive criticism..

Check out the listing above: It says Saturday, May 5 at DeSales Corner Business District.

Hi John,

Thanks for your comment. I'm curious how you're finding some of the listings...if you click our "Events" tab above, you'll find event listings under each day of the week for about a seven-day span, so the date isn't repeated when listing hours and location. I understand that could be confusing if you're simply searching for an event like this in our search bar; in that case, look to the right for a linked calendar listing or check out the event's website, which is almost always linked or mentioned in the article. I hope that helps...thanks!

Ironically I scrolled down to the comments section of this page in order to try to find the date.  I see at the article where it says "...will take place 11 a.m.-5 p.m. rain or shine" to but that is the logical and most efficient place to write the date and day of the event, next to the time of the event, in my opinion at least.  I am looking for events to do on Sunday, I could not easily find whether it was Sat or Sun.  

I understand your point about the events calendar but when surfing an article it should be clearer.  I found the event by reading an article called "Top 9 things to do this weekend..." on your site.  

Hope your take this feedback for what it is, just a suggestion to list the date and day of the events in the text!  Thank you

thanks, jac, it sure does.  it's kind of awkward to have to look for that outside the body of the article, though.  hannah, i think i must surf in from the wcpo site more times than not.  today i did regarding the pottery event.  the date isn't mentioned on wcpo.  then when you click right to here, it's awkward to find the date down in the right hand corner.  guess i know now...lol.  seems like the last time i did that was an earthday event.  also, while we're at it the calendar part of the citybeat site seems to not function well using firefox. thanks for all your help!
