2021 GourdFest  
Kiwanis Fairgrounds
1025 Hill Street
Griffin, GA  30224
The Georgia Gourd Society 
would like to invite you to be an Instructor at our 2021 Annual GourdFest.
September 24th -26th at Kiwanis Fairgrounds in Griffin, GA

We are very excited about the 2021 GourdFest & expect a huge crowd this year. The theme this year is “Gourds on the Go” –all methods of transportation. We can’t wait to see all the new competition pieces created. We are planning to have a bigger & better GourdFest this year as the County Fair will be going on at the same time as our GourdFest, for the first time.  


We plan to have teacher apps submitted via google docs just as Cherokee does, and we plan to use the same registration programs for student registration as well.

Demos & Make it-Take it
If you are interested in renting a vendor booth, applications will be posted on the website soon. We encourage vendors to also have demos and/or “make it/take it” projects in their booth. GGS will have a “make it-take it” booth as well. These projects have been very successful in past years for walk in guests, and have even brought us new members to our Gourd Society. This year we expect a “tremendous” increase of walk in traffic, so plan to reap the benefits from it.

Any questions or concerns may be sent to georgiagourdsociety@gmail.com

                          Let’s get the information out to more “Gourders”                                                 & spread the “Gourd news”.
So very excited to see what you all have created to share in 2020!!!

                                        Happy Gourding Ya’ll,
