The 2020 Gourd Festival Canceled Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

The North Carolina Gourd Society has made the difficult decision to cancel the NC Gourd Arts and Crafts Festival for November 2020. Given a potential large loss of revenue due to reduced attendance, and the complications of monitoring social distancing and whatever governmental restrictions would be in effect at the time of the festival, the consensus of the NCGS Board of Directors is to postpone the festival to 2021. The dates for the 2021 gourd festival are November 6-7. We will keep you posted on related developments through our quarterly newsletter and the NCGS Facebook page.
