Wuertz Farm Gourd Festival


What is the brief history of the Wuertz family and gourds?
The Wuertz family moved and started farming in the area in 1929. Waylon Wuertz is a fourth-generation farmer and started growing gourds right after college. He met his wife Leah at a gourd patch and together they
have grown the business into what it is today.

What is the Gourd Festival?
The Wuertz Farm Gourd Festival is a three-day event full of gourd vendors from near and far selling their gourd art and crafts, gourd classes, a judged gourd art competition hosted by the AZGS (Arizona Gourd Society), nonstop entertainment, food vendors and thousands of dried gourds for sale.
