2021 Gourd Art Competition

Announcement of Entry Rules and registration for the 2021 Arizona Gourd Art Competition is being delayed until early September. This is to give the AZGS board of directors and competition committee chairs time to make decisions on the feasibility of holding the competition due to growing concerns over the coronavirus and its impact on our members, volunteers, and attendees.
