President's Message

After much deliberation, the 2020 Georgia Gourd Festival, "Gourds On The Go," has been cancelled following a vote by the GGS Board of Directors. Due to unpredictable Covid 19 concerns for the near future, we have come to this difficult decision in order to protect our teachers, vendors, students, members, and other attendees. This was to have been the first year that our Fest was to coincide with the county fair, providing the opportunity for many additional individuals to learn about gourds and gourd art.
My thanks to all our wonderful teachers, vendors, and members who have invested their time and efforts in planning this event - we look forward to using this experience to prepare for a successful 2021 GourdFest, and hope that all of you will plan to join us. Meanwhile, please take care and stay safe.
