report this


This Veteran's Day weekend, the largest indoor arts and crafts show on the West Coast will return to the Peninsula for a whole weekend of shopping, live entertainment, celebrity appearances, prizes, artist demonstrations, delicious food and down-home family fun. The San Mateo Harvest Festival® Original Art and Craft Show will return to the San Mateo Event Center November 9-11, offering over 24,000 original arts and crafts. The Harvest Festivals boast thousands of various gifts that are perfect for everyone, including jewelry, woodturnings, art and photography, specialty foods, clothing, décor and more. Throughout the day there is live stage entertainment and strolling performers that wander the aisles and entertain attendees as they shop. Crowd favorites Tom Rigney and Flambeau will be headlining the main stage with their fiery fiddling and signature Cajun/Zydeco influenced songs. Also joining the stage entertainment are the Barbary Coast Cloggers, a high-energy American step-dance team. This year's show will feature a special appearance by celebrity broadcaster Liam Mayclem, host of KCBS radio's "Foodie Chap" and CBS 5's "Eye on the Bay". Artisans featured at the Harvest Festivals are vetted by the Harvest Festival management team to ensure products are all handmade and made in the United States. The juried process also ensures a rich mix and diversity of merchandise. The Peninsula Humane Society/SPCA is the selected charity of the show and will receive half of the proceeds from all shopping bags sold, as well as all the donations collected from the Parcel Check. Plus, the PHS/SPCA will host a special mobile adoption on Saturday and Sunday. The KidZone, a specialized area for kids to participate in hands on crafting activities, will be sponsored by Gingerbread-on-the-Go and will offer gingerbread cookie decorating. The San Mateo Harvest Festival® runs November 9-11, 2012 from 10am - 6pm on Friday and Saturday and 10am - 5pm on Sunday at the San Mateo Event Center in San Mateo, CA. Tickets range in price from $4 to $9 and are good the entire weekend. For tickets and additional information, please visit or call 800-346-1212.
