Sacramento Harvest Festival® Boasts New Vendors, Exciting Entertainment and Personalized Gifts
Top Rated Craft Show Returns to Cal Expo Just in Time for Thanksgiving
By: The Harvest Festival Original Art and Craft Shows
The Harvest Festival showcases over 24,000 unique items which are all handmade in America. Guests can browse original art, jewelry, clothing, specialty foods, photography, pottery, toys, home décor and more. The vendors who create each item are on hand to speak with shoppers and many offer custom design options.
James Garner's Cash Tribute returns to the Harvest Festival and remains a favorite act among the entertainment line-up. The band plays the hits of Johnny Cash and recreates the life of the legend, taking the crowd through a musical journey of "The Man in Black." Plus, doo-wop group Sister Swing will serenade audience members with their upbeat boogie woogie sound and classic stage moves.
Children can take part in eco-friendly craft activities at the hands-on KidZone. Hosted by Nature of Art for Kids, a company offering non toxic and repurposed art supplies, the KidZone offers a space for kids to exercise their imagination and create an art project which they can take home with them. Located directly next to the Kidzone is free child ID kit station, sponsored by New York Life.
The AT&T Pioneers have once again joined forces with the Sacramento Harvest Festival as its official non-profit community partner. The volunteer network, which helps local communities through aid to educational programs, local food drives, and natural disasters, 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.
Additionally, Elk Grove Food Bank Services will be on site holding their annual Food Drive and will provide a $2 off admission to anyone who brings a non-perishable food donation.
Each day there will be a grab bag prize giveaway and all guests can enter to win the Grand Prize, which is a luxury stay at the Ridge Resorts.

ABOUT THE HARVEST FESTIVAL ORIGINAL ART AND CRAFT SHOW®:
The Harvest Festivals began 43 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 nine shows in the state of California and Nevada and still continues its tradition by only featuring handmade 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 are able to directly interact with the artists, watch crafting demonstrations, and can get many gifts personalized. The Harvest Festivals are owned and managed by Western Exhibitors, a family owned company.
