The 2019 Harvest Festival® Original Art & Craft Show, brings an influx of autumn-inspiration to the Del Mar Fairgrounds October 11-13, 2019. With more than 24,000 handmade creations, live entertainment, specialty foods, contests, a Kidzone, and more, it’s a treasured 22-year tradition for friends and families.
As the west coast’s largest and most prestigious indoor showcase, the celebration unites hundreds of artists and crafters from throughout the nation. An epic array of jewelry, ceramics, seasonal décor, kids clothing, photography, oils, sculptures, woodworks, Halloween accessories, blown glass, ornaments, and other original works, make shopping an adventure of discovery. Artists can also personalize many items for gifting. Festival foodies can sample oodles of mouth-watering homemade sauces, spices, nuts, oils, candies, and baked goods.
Festival goers can bring canned goods for donation to the North County Food Bank to get $2 off admission.
“As a woman-owned family business, we take pride in creating an immersive shopping experience unlike any other,” says Nancy Glenn, owner of the Harvest Festival. “Whether you’re a DIY devotee, art collector, or Festival-goer, our presentation brings together emerging artists whose passions spark excitement and new trends.”
Live entertainment adds to the festivities with country hits from the toe-tapping band Magnolia Drawl and high- flying entertainment with the Jack Kalvan Jugglers. Strolling performers include stilt-walking Friendly Frankie and the cowboy crew from Fables of the West.
The Festival collaborates with local non-profits to pay it forward. Anyone who brings non-perishables for donation to the North County Food Bank receives $2 off admission. The Greyhound Adoption Center hosts the parcel check, and Macaroni Kid serves up “make ‘n’ take” enjoyment in the Kidzone.
General admission tickets are $9, Seniors (62+) and military are $7, Youths ages 13-17 are $4, and kids 12 and under are FREE. Tickets are good for the entire weekend.
