Join us for the 6th Annual October Gourd & Pumpkin Festival!
Not only will you find fabulous gourd art, great food, thousands of raw gourds, and exciting new gourd art classes, you'll also find beautiful, organic pumpkins just in time for the fall holidays!
Be sure to visit the all NEW 1,000 sqft Welburn store and Snack Bar, and try out the NEW line of woodburning tools and air vented, "stay cool" pen tips in the store's product demonstration area!
If you enjoyed the Gourd Art Festival in June, you'll love this "mini" version of the big June show! You'll find incredible gourd art and crafts and have the opportunity to talk to the artists in person!

The October Gourd and Pumpkin Festival is the perfect time to pick up gifts for the holidays, or even learn to create your own in the fantastic variety of classes offered!
The Welburn Gourd Farm has joined forces with the California Gourd Society to bring you the 3rd Annual Iron Gourd Competition! For more information on the Iron Gourd Competition, please contact CGS.
Gourd Art Classes have been expanded to 2 Days!
Be sure to sign up for one of the many exciting Gourd Art Classes, happening Friday before the event, and Saturday during the event! (You will have plenty of breaks during the class on Saturday so you can enjoy the festival!)
