Showcasing a colossal collection of handmade creations, the Harvest Festival® Original Art & Craft Show, will be coming to three key southland locations this fall with more than 24,000 original works from hundreds of exhibitors nationwide. The “over the top” shopping experience offers something for everyone to enjoy with stage entertainment, strolling performers, a Kidzone, demonstrations, contests, and more.
Revered as the largest and most prestigious indoor showcase on the west coast, the Harvest Festival features artisan treasures of stunning jewelry, clothing, specialty foods, photography, oils, hand-turned wood, music, ceramics, eclectic art pieces, seasonal décor, ornaments, and much more. Each season the artists explore a variety of styles with their creations, pushing the boundaries to spark excitement and new trends. The opportunity to personalize items and visit with each artist brings added meaning to each purchase.
“We work year-round to create the quintessential shopping encounter that engages our patrons on every level,” says Nancy Glenn, owner of the Harvest Festival. “It’s a feast for all the senses, whether you’re a DYI devotee, an art collector, or on a quest for that special handmade gift you won’t find anywhere else.”
Beyond the hundreds of artists and entertainment, each showcase collaborates with local non-profits to fundraise in support of community programs. General admission tickets are $9, while seniors (62+) and military are $7, youths ages 13-17 are $4, and kids 12 and under are free. Tickets are good for the entire weekend and return visits. Entrance for groups of 10 or more is $5 with advance sign up. Information and advance tickets are available at www.harvestfestival.com or call 925/ 392-7300.
