Psi Chapter of the American Gourd Society

The objectives of the Mississippi Gourd Society are to promote the culture and crafting of gourds, to provide informational and educational services to its members, to have all members involved in the promotion of gourds and gourd crafting, and to provide an annual  show for the promotion of gourds, gourd crafting, the sharing of ideas, and  general fellowship with other members.  We hope you’ll  join us in this effort, both here in  Mississippi and in other areas of the country.  We’re all gourdheads, no matter where we are!

Mississippi Gourd Society is a non-profit organization.

We greatly appreciate your support of the past eight Mississippi Gourd Festivals.  We are sorry to announce that a gourd festival will not be held in 2018.  We do not have enough folks to donate the needed time and expertise prior to the festival.  It’s difficult even finding enough volunteers to work during the actual festival.  Our few movers and shakers need a break.  A retreat with classes or a day filled with gourdcrafting and sharing is being planned for Saturday, September 15, 2018, at the Smith County Ag Complex in Raleigh, MS.  More details to follow.  

See the pages under the Resources tab for info on where to buy gourds and supplies.
