Annual NC Gourd Arts and Crafts Festival, At this celebration of the venerable cousin of squash, you will see gourds from around the world and from our own backyards. Displays of historic and exotic gourds will show how this garden oddity has served in our households since the beginning of civilization. You will meet crafters and growers who can teach you how to turn a moldy gourd straight from the garden into an object of lasting beauty. On sale will be gourds, gourd craft, crafting supplies and seeds. Buy a dried gourd straight from the gourd patch, or try your hand at gourd craft. Choose some seed and grow a gourd or ten. Gourd growers and crafters will compete for ribbons from heaviest and longest to best gourd animals, flowers, masks, bowls and more.
