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.
With regards to the COVID-19 outbreak....
At this time, we are moving forward with all of our festival plans. No one knows with certainty how long restrictions will be in effect, but we are moving forward with the expectation that they will be lifted by the end of the summer. We will post updates here on our website, so please come back here for the latest status.
We'll have 3 fun days of classes from September 10th through the 12th.
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 currently taking booth applications from sellers of gourd, basketry, and wood art and sellers of art supplies. If you would like to have a booth at our 2021 festival, please fill out the online vendor application.
Are you a vendor, but you can't attend the 2021 festival? Get on our vendor's mailing list.
