Hello all, just want to let you know we’re very excited as we prepare for the 2023 Ghost Creek Gourd Fest.  April 28-29, 2023


As in the past; this year’s event will be an outside one, with the large tents for classes.

We’ll be lining up some wonderful Instructors with Classes of learning to use many different techniques as you craft on gourds and have a fun time too.  Of course, we'll have a fun Make-n-Take Class that we think folks will enjoy along with the already finished gourds to be purchased which, by the way, make wonderful gifts.  Remember, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day will be soon!


The South Carolina Gourd Society and Ghost Creek Gourds are looking forward to having y’all join us April 28-29, 2023 as we host The 17th Annual Gourd Fest at Ghost Creek Gourd Farm, Laurens SC.
