About Empty Bowls

The idea is simple. Enjoy local pottery and food at this casual family-friendly event. Choose a handmade artisanal bowl. Taste samples of soup, bread and dessert from 36 local restaurants. Keep your bowl as a reminder that your support helps fill all the empty bowls in our community.
