In mid-July, Crooksville and Roseville host the annual Crooksville-Roseville Pottery Festival. The location of the festival alternates each year between the Crooksville Village Park and the Roseville Park. The Pottery Festival was first held in 1966.
The festival begins each year with a plate-breaking ceremony. Twelve plates are made with a special design for that year. One plate is broken to signify the start of the festival. One plate is kept for permanent display. And the remaining plates are auctioned off. The money from the auction is used to support the Clay Center of Ohio.
