The Harvest Festival - Original Art & Craft Show
For four decades, the Harvest Festival has been the biggest and best art and craft show in the San Diego area. Families from all over the region come to enjoy affordable American handmade crafts, great food, and fun entertainment.
More than 300 artists and craftspeople—many new to the show—will offer unique American handmade works, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas décor, handmade wearable art, photography, garden decorations, hand-turned wood, unique holiday gifts, ceramics, jewelry, children’s toys, and much more. All products in the show are American-made, and chosen by a jury.
Families enjoy the live entertainment at the Harvest Festival, which includes live bands, stilt walkers, comedy juggling, and the beloved “horsey guys” comedy group.
Home Depot Carmel Mountain returns this year to host its Kids’ Workshop, teaching do-it-yourself skills and tool safety for youngsters at the complimentary Kidzone. All proceeds from voluntary donations will benefit nonprofit partner Mama’s Kitchen. Plus, anyone bringing a non-perishable food item to Mama’s Kitchen will receive a $2 discount on one general or senior admission.
For the first time in Del Mar, we welcome Nature of Art kids’ arts and crafts, who will be offering fun and free kids’ painting and crafts projects adjacent to the Home Depot booth.
Back in Del Mar this year are Harvest Festival favorites HyJinx, Big Mama Sue & Fast Eddie, Fables of the West (aka The Horsey Guys), WC Willy and Friendly Frankie, and juggler Chuck Gunter. New this year is Skip Banks’ one-man comedy show featuring “The Balloon Man.”
