Festival Fundraisers

Annual Festival Auction

The auction is our society’s largest source of funding for the year and is only as profitable as our donations and our bidders. 

We are asking donations of gourd supplies, books, raw gourds, finished gourd art or anything else gourd related!  

If you have questions or need to know where and when to drop off your donated items please contact:

Fine Art Gourd Raffle

We have some great artists that have volunteered to donate their gourd art this year and we know that you will have a problem deciding which gourd art you hope to win.  We encourage you to join in the fun and the excitement. Our gourd raffle is once again offering an impressive collection of gourd art. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. Winners are drawn on Sunday but you need not be present to win. SMGS would like to thank these very talented artists for donating their wonderful gourd art to be raffled off at this year’s festival!
