The Harvest Festival Offers Sacramento A Unique Holiday Shopping Experience


We have (2) family packs of tickets to give away to a couple of lucky followers, so keep reading!

The holidays are quickly approaching, and you know what that means…shopping! If you are dreading Black Friday and the thought of fighting your way into favorite retailers just to get a good deal on what your kiddos want…well, you might want to take a different shopping approach this year.  The Harvest Festival Art and Craft Show is coming to Sacramento next week.

“Ranked as one of the top craft shows in the country, the Harvest Festivals offer over 24,000 unique handmade gifts that are all handmade in America. Guests can browse original art, jewelry, clothing, specialty foods, photography, pottery, toys, home décor and more. With musical acts such as local favorites the Fargo Brother and Sister Swing, attendees come for the shopping but stay for the entertainment. There will also be strolling performers such as Mama Claus and Eddie the Elf wandering the aisles and serenading shoppers. Be on the lookout for WC Willy who will be towering high above the festival on his stilts.

Children are encouraged to “go green” as they take part in eco-friendly art projects at the interactive KidZone, hosted by Nature of Art for Kids, a company offering non toxic and repurposed art supplies. Plus, New York Life will be on hand offering free child ID kits.

The AT&T Pioneers have been invited back as the official non-profit partner of the Sacramento Harvest Festival. 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. Elk Grove Food Bank Services will also return to the festival with its annual food drive. The non-profit organization will be on site providing a $2 off discount admission to anyone who brings a non-perishable food donation.

Each day there will be a grab bag prize giveaway, and one lucky winner will be chosen on Sunday for the grand prize drawing for an iPad mini.”

  1. I believe kids both young and old would love the entertainment of Mama Claus & Eddie the Elf, Fables of the West, and WC Willy dressed as Santa on his stilts.

  2. I think the whole family will have a blast at the Harvest Festival. I know the kids will love make the arts and crafts, they love that kind of stuff. I sure hope I win the tickets.

  3. My son loves theater and music so he’d probably enjoy Sister Swing and the strolling performers the most. However I’m sure all of the arts and crafts would inspire our family’s creativity. We love to make homemade gifts for the holidays!

  4. My kids would like this because all they do after school now is play video games. This would be a good change for them. Also, they are hard to buy for and they would get to see many many different kinds of gifts, and I’m sure they would find stuff they would like to get.
