Harvest Festival not just for fall any more
Submitted By Tiffany Siemens
The Harvest Festival Original Art and Craft Show has a longstanding reputation of not only providing people with a fun-filled weekend of shopping, but also for giving back to each community that hosts the show.
This weekend's Pleasanton Harvest Festival designated Valley Humane Society as its official charity. VHS is an animal welfare organization providing educational outreach and collaborative programs that enrich the bond between people and companion animals and eliminate unnecessary euthanasia.
The Harvest Festival will provide VHS with a $500 donation, proceeds from parcel check, and half the proceeds from shopping bag sales.
In addition to the shopping extravaganza, there will be live musicians, strolling entertainers and an area set aside for kids to participate in hands-on arts and crafts activities.
For over 35 years, the Harvest Festival has allowed shoppers to browse and select from thousands of unique, handmade items including jewelry, photographs, sculptures, pottery, accessories, clothing, specialty foods and more.
Tickets are $7 for adults and $4 for ages 13-17. Groups of 10 or more pay $5 each. Tickets are good for all three days.
