Harvest Festival® Original Art & Craft Show
Celebrates 20th Annual Fall Showcase at Del Mar Fairgrounds

Get ready to discover a treasure trove of arts & crafts by the sea when the Harvest Festival Original Art & Craft Show comes to the Del Mar Fairgrounds Oct. 13 - 15, featuring 24,000 handmade originals from hundreds of artists.

About the Show:
As the west coast’s largest and most prestigious indoor showcase, the Harvest Festival creates a mega shopping experience for all ages with live entertainment, strolling performers, demonstrations, contests, and an interactive Kidzone. This year’s 20th annual event has even more exhibitors and engaging activities that celebrate creativity and spark excitement in new trends.

Featured Art:
The showcase features a wealth of riches ranging from stunning handmade jewelry, ceramics, and blown glass, to hand-turned wood, leather goods, clothing, specialty foods, eclectic art pieces, seasonal décor, ornaments and much more. While crafting demonstrations inspire DIYers, many artists can also personalize items for the perfect gift.

We work year-round to bring together the finest artists and crafters from across the nation,” says Harvest Festival owner Nancy Glenn. “Variety and quality are held to high standards so that we may continue to deliver the peak experience our loyal patrons have come to expect.

The celebration gives back to the community by partnering with the North County Food Bank to offer $2 off general admission to any patrons who bring canned goods for donation. The Greyhound Adoption Center of La Mesa will be on hand with pet adoptions and Macaroni Kid hosts the Kidzone with free make “n” take activities. Daily contests offer free shopping dollars and the opportunity to be a grand prize winner.

Live Performances:
The outdoor stage comes alive with performances from the Mary White Band, a high-energy, two-stepping rock out country band, and comedy entertainer John Park, featuring his funny waiter antics with audience participation.

General Admission - $9
Seniors (62+) and Military - $7
Youths (13-17) - $4,
Kids 12 and under - Free
