    The tour is hosted by the Cannon Clay Cooperative, a group established in 2014 comprised of ten professional ceramicists from the Northfield area. Eleven guest potters from around the country will join them in the inaugural tour. The event includes functional potters, sculptors, and installation artists working in porcelain, stoneware, and terracotta. There will be a rich diversity of work represented: carved vessels, wood-fired and soda-fired pottery, sculpted animals, colorful and whimsical functional ware, botanically-inspired works, screen-printed pots, and pieces embellished with a myriad of patterns, natural scenes, and narratives.

    Northfield, Minnesota’s annual Defeat of Jesse James Days is a wild and wooly community festival that revolves around one of the most dramatic episodes of the Old West, the Great Northfield, Minnesota Bank Raid of 1876.

    Held each year on the weekend after Labor Day, it celebrates the courage of a town that defied Jesse James and the James-Younger Gang and won. Horses thunder down the historic main street and bullets fly during the many authentic bank raid re-enactments that tell this amazing story. It is street theater at its best.

    In addition, the celebration features professional rodeo, Northfield Arts Guild Riverfront Fine Art Festival, car shows, parades, great music, great food and plenty of activities for the family. Four days of non-stop fun, history and fellowship in an idyllic, historic river town worthy of a Norman Rockwell canvas.

    Jesse James Bike Tour September 9th from 7 am - 5pm. Enjoy the great outdoors and meet new people on one of five routes, each featuring aid stations and refreshments. All proceeds from the ride benefit community projects. More information can be found at jessejamesbiketour.org

Both runs finish at the original First National Bank building where the townspeople of Northfield, in 1876, stopped a bank robbery by the notorious James-Younger gang.
