The Lone Star Gourd Festival brings artists from across the U.S. to compete in a gourd art competition where the artists have transformed gourds into fine art and craft. They are carved, wood burned, woven, polished, dyed, painted and inlaid as if they were wood. Visitors may tour the competition results and participate in voting for the People’s Choice award.
Vendors will have gourd art and supplies for sale. Gourd classes will be taught for all skill levels. Classes and vendor applications can be found on the Texas Gourd Society website.
