The show is a showcase of all the many aspects of gourds. There is an exhibition with 88 categories of gourd work/art. There are demos throughout the weekend, classes, a children's make-and-take, and gourd growers featuring many varieties. Over 35 booths with crafted gourds and supplies will be featured at the show. The theme for this year's show is "Old MacDonalds Gourd Farm".
