We are the Texas Gourd Society comprised of gourd artists. This event features gourd art for sale, vendors of gourd related products, competition of gourd art, a "Kids Corner" where they can have a hands-on experience of making gourd art (free) and five days of gourd art classes. We also will have demonstrations of different gourd art techniques and applications held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All held at the Civic Center in New Braunsfel, Texas. Gourd art classes are available all five days but the festival is on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You may sign up for classes on our website; www.texasgourdsociety.org.
