Lone Star Gourd Festival

Sponsored by the Texas Gourd Society, the Lone Star Gourd Festival brings artists and crafters from across the country to Fredericksburg. The three-day event features a gourd art competition, gourd art sales, gourd supplies, and technique classes. Artists and crafters transform gourds into incredible fine art and crafts that are carved, wood burned, woven, polished, dyed, painted, and inlaid as if they were wood. Shop the many artist booths, tour the art competition area, vote in the People's Choice award, and stop at the "Imagination Station," where children and adults can try their hand at creating their own gourd art.

When:

Sept. 30-Oct. 2

Where:

Gillespie County Fairgrounds Fredericksburg, Texas
