Pleasanton Harvest Festival Returns to Alameda Fairgrounds with Thousands of Handmade Items
Over 24,000 Unique Gifts Featured at One of the Nation's Top Craft Shows
The Harvest Festival features thousands of handmade arts and crafts, including jewelry, ceramics, blown glass, clothing, art and photography, specialty foods and more. Attendees can browse hundreds of booths, getting purchases personalized and meeting the artists who individually handcrafted each item.
Guests can take a break from the shopping extravaganza to enjoy fabulous live entertainment at the outdoor stage. This year, the Hot Rods Band, will take the Harvest Festival stage for the first time playing classic oldies hits of the 50's and 60's. The Hot Rods Band covers the greatest era of rock and roll and will transport the audience to a time of sock hops, beach parties and cruisin' cars.
The Pleasanton Harvest Festival® is proud to support 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 were recognized as one of the top 200 craft shows in the United States 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.
