The Nevada Gourd Society is very excited to announce we are busy ramping up for our 2019 Silver State Art Festival to be held September 13, 14 & 15 in beautiful and historic Carson City, Nevada.
We are currently signing up vendors and teachers for this awesome event.
The Nevada Gourd Society (NGS) is a non profit organization dedicated to providing education and information regarding Lagenaria (hard shell) gourd growing, curing and crafting.
At this time, we have two gourd patches in Nevada. Kristy Dial is the director of the Great Basin Gourd Patch in the Reno area, and Patti Jo Newsom is the director of the Pahrump Valley Gourd Patch in southern Nevada. Each gourd patch has regular monthly meetings in which members share knowledge on growing and crafting gourds. Our goal is to have many gourd patches located throughout our great state of Nevada.

We encourage you to join the Nevada Gourd Society. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned gourd artist, the Nevada Gourd Society has much to offer.
As membership increases, and the number of gourd patches increases, our goal is to provide one or two statewide gatherings per year in the form of workshops and festivals.
