Casa Grande, AZ
February 3-5, 2012

Pinal County Fairgrounds

Plan to join us for the "Running of the Gourds," the Wuertz Farm's ninth annual gourd festival. Over 100 artists and vendors will knock your socks off with beautiful works of art created from common gourds. There will be a juried show, gourder games, a visit from Flash Gourden, mini gourdster races, live music and entertainment and food booths. Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, rain or shine—most activities are indoors.

Come prepared for an appetizer meet and greet Friday night, a Saturday evening potluck, a continental breakfast Saturday, and omelets for our Sunday farewell breakfast. February is Arizona's centennial celebration. We will have appropriate games and contests on Saturday afternoon.

Area amenities include golf courses, the Casa Grande Ruins Museum, a nearby bakery and some great restaurants.

Campsites are $20/night for water 30-amp service. There is a dump station on site. The campground also has a room to rent.
