Festivities will take place once again at Marietta Shrine Club, a beautiful facility located at 249 Pennsylvania Avenue in Marietta (near the fairgrounds).

Our 2023 Convention was a Blast from the Past!
We wish to sincerely thank each and every one of you who attended our 2023 Convention.  We are thrilled with the turnout, support, and level of participation. We had a whopping 28 table displays this year! Each one was stunningly beautiful and just stepping into the venue was a breathtaking experience. We hope you had safe travels home, and that you plan to join us next year for our 48th!

The FAGCA Board of Trustees hope you are making plans to attend convention this year. Please also consider displaying your favorite collection for everyone's viewing pleasure.  Photos of past table displays can be seen below, so you have an idea how fellow members have shared their glass collections. Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place - voted on by YOU!

FAGCA's special tour of the factory on August 4, 2016 was to include a small companion booklet for review during the tour. Unfortunately, we were unable to put this booklet together in time for the tour. We are thrilled our attendance exceeded the numbers we were expecting, but this caused some members to go home without this little momento. Please feel free to view the booklet below, in photgraphic form. Excerpts taken from "Fenton Glass: The 2nd 25 Years" and "Fenton Glass: The 3rd 25 Years" both by William Heacock and "The Fenton Story of Glass Making" by Alan Linn.
