About Display Room

Each year at the Annual July Convention Members have an opportunity to set up displays of real Red Wing Pottery and Stoneware. All entries receive a regular Commemorative. Displays are voted on by CrockFest attendees and special commemoratives are awarded to the winners. 

The display room accepts both competitive and non-competitive displays. Only competitive displays are voted on and eligible to win a special commemorative. Most non-competitive displays are put together by RWCS Chapters.

Competitive Displays
The categories for Competitive Displays are:

  • Stoneware

There are 10 total possible awards: Best of Show and People’s Choice in each of the standard categories of stoneware, dinnerware, art pottery, and memorabilia. The is ONE winner for the People’s Choice Dennis Yaeggi Rare Item and ONE Mixed Media Award. The winning display member will receive one of the CrockFest special commemoratives.

Display FAQs: 

Who is eligible to display? Any RWCS member in good standing and registered for the Convention.

Is the Display area secure? The Display Chair/Committee/ and RWCS Board of Directors make reasonable efforts to safeguard the property of the displayers. The RWCS does provide 24-hour security for the loan period either by Contracted Security during display hours, or by locking the doors when the Display room is not in operation.

Are there rules for Display? Yes, those are outlined on the annual Display Contract for each convention. Displayers are required to read the document, sign and return it to the RWCS Office before CrockFest. As a general rule, entries must be submitted no later than one month prior to the first day of CrockFest. See this year’s Display Agreement form for this year’s deadline.
