Planned and carried out by residents of Gowensville, the festival is a time for neighbors to visit and to support financially the community center, built in 1922 as the Gowensville school. It closed in the mid-fifties and now serves as a place for birthday parties, family reunions, weddings and meetings of the Landrum Quilters, under the auspices of the Greater Gowensville Association.
