What to See & Do

Alabama Gourd Festival

October 19, 2013 to October 20, 2013

Come see the beautiful original pieces of gourd art. Learn how artists achieve their special techniques with the many FREE demonstrations throughout the weekend. Bring the kids by the free kids'' patch booth where they can decorate their own little gourd and take it home with them. You won't want to miss the exhibition room where each of our gourd artists and growers has entered a juried competition. Shop the arts and crafts show, take a class, and maybe even find a new hobby! Always the third weekend in October.
