FAGCA Convention...

a fun gathering of fellow Fenton collectors and friends.

2023 Convention - 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!

48th Annual


July 23, 24, & 25th


We are pleased to announce FAGCA's 48th Annual Convention. The 2024 theme will have mention of the planned Museum of Fenton Art Glass (official theme name pending). This will be planned for you by convention co-chairs Miriam Boyle, Max & Deanna Iverson, and Claire Kauffung. Festivities will take place once again at Marietta Shrine Club, a beautiful facility located at 249 Pennsylvania Avenue in Marietta (near the fairgrounds). This is a wonderful venue in a beautiful setting, right along the Muskingum River. We feel this location will serve our growing needs perfectly and will afford our members the freedom to choose lodging which best suits them.

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.
