The Lone Star Gourd Festival Returns

Lone Star Gourd Festival

The Texas Gourd Society just announced the date for the 2018 Lone Star Gourd Festival. The society-sanctioned event will be on Aug. 3–5, and it’s going to be lots of fun. Once again, some of the best gourd artists in the world will descend on the New Braunfels Convention Center to compete in the art contest.

This festival is more than a competition, though. Yes, watching someone take home “Best of Show” in the gourd art competition will be exciting, but that’s just one of many things to look forward to when you attend the festival. You can enjoy quite a bit at the festival, and tickets just cost $5 for adults. People 17 and under get in for free.

Demonstrations and Classes

The festival’s organizers don’t just want to show you works of art. They also want to teach you how to make your own gourd art. That begins with gourd art classes. While the festival doesn’t start until Aug. 3, classes start on Aug. 1 and run through the end of the festival. Attend some of the classes if you want to learn how to make your own gourd art. There are classes for different skill levels, so it’s easy to find something that works for you.

You can also watch the pros at work. There’ll be demonstrations throughout the festival. Stop by to watch an expert work on a project. The expert will all answer your gourd-related questions, including how to grow and design your gourd.

Win Some Fine Art

There will be a raffle at the competition, and you can win some fine art. The gourds being raffled off are absolutely gorgeous, and you’ll be in awe of them. Even if you lose the raffle, you will still win in a way since you’ll be helping the Texas Gourd Society. The money raised by the raffle will be used to promote gourd outreach. This will help others get interested in gourds.

There sure is a lot to do at the Lone Star Gourd Festival. You don’t have to be around gourds to stay busy, though. You can keep the good times rolling with the help of a new vehicle from Nissan of New Braunfels in New Braunfels, Texas. Your new ride will always be ready to take you to your next adventure. Just slide behind the wheel and take off on an adventure.
