The very popular annual Gourd Art Festival held at Welburn Gourd Farm in Fallbrook, CA celerated it's final show in June 2011. After 15 great shows, tens of thousands of visitors, hundreds of amazing gourd artists exhibits, gourd art competitions, live entertaiment, and so much more, it was time to redirect our focus and so the annual festival was discontinued.
We share in some very fond memories with all our visitors, exhibitors, and especially our staff members who always worked extra hard to make our shows something special.
