The Harvest Festivals are the largest indoor arts and crafts shows on the West Coast, boasting over 24,000 unique handmade gifts that are all made in America. Guests can browse jewelry, clothing, fine art and photography, pottery, toys, home décor and more, all while mingling with the artists that create each piece.
Throughout the weekend there is high-energy live entertainment, including local Sacramento area band Bad Catz and Cash Tribute featuring James Garner, a Johnny Cash tribute band. There will also be the usual strolling entertainers such as Washboard Willy, Mama Claus and Eddie the Elf and WC Willy dressed as an elf and hovering high above the festival on his stilts.
The official charity of the Sacramento Harvest Festival® are the AT&T Pioneers, a volunteer network that helps local communities by aiding educational programs, running local food drives, assisting after natural disasters, and much more. The AT&T Pioneers will receive half of the proceeds from shopping bag sales, as well as all the proceeds from the bag and parcel check and the gift wrapping station.
Elk Grove Food Bank Services will also be onsite at the front of the entrance and will give a $2 off discount admission to anyone who brings a non-perishable food donation to the event.
Nature of Art for Kids, a company offering non toxic and eco friendly art supplies, will be hosting the interactive KidZone and will have hands on art activities for children.

ABOUT THE HARVEST FESTIVAL® ORIGINAL ART AND CRAFT SHOW:
The Harvest Festivals began 40 years ago in San Francisco as a destination for artists and craftspeople to gather and have a forum to sell their handmade products. Today, the show has grown to encompass ten shows in the state of California, Nevada and Arizona and still continues its tradition by only featuring arts and crafts made in the United States. Each exhibitor is subject to a rigid jury process to be selected as a featured artisan, ensuring a rich diversity and high quality of all products sold. Attendees can interact directly with the artists, watch crafting demonstrations, and can get many gifts personalized. The Harvest Festivals, owned and managed by Western Exhibitors, are the largest indoor arts and crafts show on the West Coast.
