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  and other artwork 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.

Friday April 26 1:00 – 5:00 and Saturday April 27 6:00 – 5:00

The 18 th Annual Ghost Creek Gourd Fest sponsored by The South Carolina Gourd Society and Ghost Creek Gourd Farm would like to invite you to join us this year. We have some great classes lined up with Instructors coming from NC, GA, KY and PA for both days and hope you’ll come for a fun day on the Gourd Farm. We’ll also have some folks selling Crafted Gourds, Tools and Supplies, Paints and Stains and Ghost Creek Gourd Farm will be selling gourds.


There will be a Make-n-Take tent for $5.00 so adults can create a Necklace or Key Ring in 30 minutes or so. The children, at no charge, will be painting a Gourd Birdhouse to take home.

An exciting addition to this year’s show will be Charles Womack, a talented Hand Carver
and ChainSaw Artist from Duncan, SC. He will have some of his work to sell and will
doing demonstrations throughout the weekend.
