The Pleasanton Harvest Festival, happening September 18-20 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, is ringing in the fall shopping season by offering attendees thousands of unique, handcrafted gifts in a fun and festive setting.
The Harvest Festival is a one-of-a-kind event that offers shoppers the chance to browse thousands of American handmade arts and crafts, including original art, clothing, blown glass, ceramics, photography, specialty foods and more. Guests can visit hundreds of booths, getting their purchases personalized and meeting the artists who individually made each product.
For the first time ever, the Harvest Festival will offer a free admission to the first 100 people in line each day, so be sure to get there early!
Throughout the weekend there is fabulous, continual live entertainment at the outdoor stage. John Park will be performing his popular "Funny Waiter" show where he spins plates and has the audience participating in his hilarious tricks, and the Hot Rods Band will get the crowd on their feet and dancing with their tribute to early rock and roll hits of the 50's and 60's. Plus, strolling entertainers wander the grounds, entertaining and interacting with festival attendees.
This year, the Pleasanton Harvest Festival is proud to welcome its new official charity, the Crown Monarchs Youth Cheer and Dance Team. The Crown Monarchs are a non-profit competitive cheer team from Brentwood whose purpose is to promote athletic participation in cheerleading and dance, as well as foster the physical, mental and moral development of young girls. The organization will receive half of the proceeds from all shopping bags sold at the event and will also be hosting the interactive KidZone this year.
The Pleasanton Harvest Festival® is once again supporting the Alameda County Community Food Bank by offering $2 off admission to anyone who brings a monetary donation or non-perishable food items to the show. The Alameda County Community Food Bank serves 1 in 5 residents living throughout Alameda County and distributes enough food for 380,000 meals each week.
The Harvest Festivals were recognized as one of the top craft shows in the United States by Sunshine Artist Magazine and are the largest indoor arts and crafts show on the West Coast.
