Alabama Gourd Show

Baskets, vases, animals, ornaments and other unique creations handmade from gourds will be on display the third weekend in October during the annual Alabama Gourd Show.  The annual event, held at the Cullman Civic Center, celebrates the beauty and versatility of gourds and features masterfully created works of art from hundreds of artisans, crafters, and growers.  

Hosted by the Alabama Gourd Society, the Alabama Gourd Show offers the public an opportunity to mingle with gourd artisans and admire a variety of unique arts and crafts handmade from gourds.  Gourd artists will be demonstrating their techniques and children can decorate their own gourd to take home as a souvenir for free.

While festivalgoers can expect works of art made from gourds, the two-day event also offers demonstrations and make and take classes.  For those who want to get more hands-on, classes taught by an experienced gourd artist will be offered (fee charged).  

Show hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.  All activities take place in the Cullman Civic Center, located at 510 Fifth Street Southwest in Cullman.
