The Pleasanton Harvest FestivalÂ® Original Art and Craft Show will return to the Alameda County Fairgrounds Sept. 19-21 with a wide array of unique arts and crafts, entertainment, kids activities, live music, and specialty foods.
The Festival features will include jewelry, ceramics, blown glass, clothing, art and photography and more. Attendees can browse hundreds of booths, getting purchases personalized and meeting the artists who individually handcrafted each item.
Guests also can take a break from the shopping extravaganza to enjoy live entertainment at the outdoor stage by the Hot Rods Band, playing classic oldies hits of the 50's and 60's.
The Harvest Festival also will be 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 6 residents living throughout Alameda County, including the Tri-Valley.
The Oakley Raiders have been selected once again as the official show charity, and the Harvest Festival will offer the non-profit youth sports organization half of the proceeds from every shopping bag sold. The Oakley Raiders will also host the interactive KidZone, which is an area for children to participate in hands-on arts and crafts. Plus, New York Life will be onsite offering free child ID kits.
The Harvest Festivals have been recognized as one of the top 200 craft shows in the U.S. by Sunshine Artist Magazine and the Pleasanton show was ranked in the top 100 Fine Craft Fairs by the Art Fair Source Book.
The series of festivals, which take place in nine cities across California and Nevada, are the largest indoor arts and crafts show on the West Coast.
