The Pleasanton Harvest Festival® Original Art and Craft Show will transform the Alameda County Fairgrounds into a shopper's paradise on September 20-22, 2013, offering over 24,000 unique arts and crafts, delicious foods and exciting entertainment acts.
The Harvest Festival boasts thousands of handmade arts and crafts, including jewelry, glassware and ceramics, woodturnings, art and photography, specialty foods, clothing, and more. Attendees will enjoy strolling hundreds of booths, getting purchases personalized and interacting with the artists that created each item.
Headlining the outdoor entertainment stage this year is Captain Jack Spareribs, a performer new to the Harvest Festival circuit. A spoof of the notorious Pirates of the Caribbean character, Captain Jack Spareribs puts on a zany pirate show that features magic and illusions, dangerous juggling and ventriloquism with his talking monkey Maynard.
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 event is also partnering with the Oakley Raiders as the official show charity and 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.
The Harvest Festivals are the largest indoor arts and craft shows on the west coast, and all products offered are handmade in the United States.
