The Ice House Gallery in Mayfield, Ky., will host the Gourd Patch Arts Festival Saturday.
The annual festival celebrates a national art exhibition, All About Gourds, along with a day of artists, gourd vendors and crafters, live music, concessions, silent auction, hayrides, baked goods and an exciting gourd-mobile racecar derby. The Murray (Ky.) State Percussion Ensemble will perform using instruments made from gourds from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Festival activities are centered between Regions Bank on North 7th and the Ice House Art Center at the corner of North and North 8th Streets in Mayfield from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
Vendors will provide wagonloads of gourds of all types and sizes for crafting and decorating. Other vendor booths will include woodworking, jewelry, photography, handmade baskets, honey and gourd art.
There will also be a booth set up for “Ghost Walk” tickets. A kids activities tent will give children opportunities to create art from gourd pieces.
