After careful deliberation, we have cancelled the Mississippi Gourd Festival that was scheduled for September 17-18, 2021. We felt the upsurge of COVID-19 was too risky for the health and safety of vendors, teachers, students, and festival attendees. We regret any inconvenience this cancellation may have caused.  

If you are need gourds, see the Resources tab, Gourd Growers.  

Mississippi Gourd Society, 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.
