We will have a raffle with many nice prizes again this year. The "Tree of Life" gourd pictured below is just one of our great raffle prizes. The raffle proceeds will be going to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Western Nevada.
Carson City is a perfect location for a festival! Visitors from far and wide visit in September because of our great weather and all the wonderful things to do in this area of Nevada:
We are already signing up artists and vendors to participate in this year's festival. A list of attending artists and vendors will be posted soon.
2019 Classes are NOW open for registration!
If you've never taken a gourd or basketry class, this is a great time to take the plunge. Even better, get a friend to take a class with you! Most of our classes are designed to be easy enough for beginners, and fun for all levels of gourders and basket weavers.
Want to be notified when classes are posted?
We are no longer taking teaching applications from gourd, basketry, and wood teachers as all of our spaces are full for our 2019 festival.
Are you a teacher, and you'd like to be contacted about our 2020 festival? Get on our teacher's mailing list.
