I thought some other Northwest potter would answer this. Yes, the Puyallup
Fair is going strong, but I don't remember any teepees. There is a huge
pottery co-op sale with about 24 potters who work shifts to staff the sale
and take turns demonstrating throwing and other facets of production. It is
in the Artists in Action building, just inside the Red Gate, to the left.
Fiber arts, jewelry, and some other artists co-exist with the potters.

The Fair is around 17 days long, starts in September, and any potters new
to the area or passing through might want to check it out. (By the way,
I've sold there in the past but am not currently one of the potters.)
