41ST ANNUAL HARVEST FESTIVAL®
ORIGINAL ART & CRAFT SHOW
COMES TO VENTURA
VENTURA, CA – Adventure awaits at the Harvest Festival® Original Art & Craft Show in Ventura where shopping and entertainment combine for a fun-filled weekend October 4-6, 2013. The Ventura County Fairground comes alive with hundreds of artisans showcasing more than 24,000 handcrafted originals, stage entertainment, a Kidzone, strolling performers, contests, a pumpkin patch, specialty foods, and more.
Unique reigns supreme at the celebration revered as the west coast’s largest and finest indoor craft show, a fall tradition now 41 years in the making. Exhibitors hail from throughout North America, specializing in “made in the USA” handcrafted items at affordable prices. Patrons who bring a donation of non-perishable food items to support FOOD Share will receive $2 off both adult ($9) and senior ($7) admission. A raffle drawing includes a chance to win a Randy Polk original ring and bracelet design with Mother of Pearl, diamonds and orange sapphires valued at close to $5,000.
The festive fall-themed atmosphere makes exploring the array of exhibits an exciting discovery of beautiful jewelry, blown glass, ceramics, hand woven clothing, photography, candles, wood carvings, garden designs, homemade sauces and soups, antique treasures, children’s accessories, sculptures, holiday ornaments, and more. Patrons appreciate the opportunity to interact with the artists, get items personalized, or even learn some helpful tips through crafting demonstrations.
“Your world is transformed the moment you walk through the gate – with fall decorations and a pumpkin patch, interactive activities, entertainment, and a wide variety of artistry on display.” says Nancy Glenn, Harvest Festival Show Manager. “It’s a juried showcase so the quality of the exhibitors is top notch.”
Ever since the 70s when the Harvest Festival® Original Art & Craft Show burst on the scene as a creative way to showcase top artists and craftspeople, the organization has continued to build upon its industry precedent for quality and innovation. Nine shows now crisscross California and Nevada with a loyal following of fans that have come to expect an alluring and uncompromising presentation.
