We invite you to celebrate the beauty and versatility of hard shelled gourds and gourd art with us. Come, play and enjoy this event in the unique surroundings of this valley.

We do want to inform you, both visitors and gourd artists, that dogs are not allowed on the festival terrain anymore. There were too many complaints last year due to the huge number of dogs. So please, leave your beloved 4-legger at home.
