The Pomona Harvest Festival returns to the LA County Fairgrounds (Fairplex), December 3-5, bringing the Inland Empire a full weekend of shopping, entertainment and holiday cheer.
The Harvest Festivals are the largest indoor arts and craft shows on the West Coast, boasting over 24,000 handmade treasures. The show began 38 years ago in San Francisco as a forum for artists and crafts people to gather together to sell and share their creations. Today, the Harvest Festival continues its tradition of offering American handmade crafts, coupled with a fun entertainment, delicious food and a unique shopping atmosphere. For one weekend, hundreds of artisans come together to exhibit and sell items such as jewelry, photographs, sculptures, pottery, toys, accessories, clothing, specialty foods, home décor and more!
Each participating vendor must be juried into the show, assuring that only the highest quality products are offered. Many attendees love interacting with the renowned artists who create each individual item, watching live crafting demonstrations and getting their purchases personalized.
Throughout the day, the Pomona Harvest Festival features live music and exciting entertainment acts that are fun for the whole family. Comedic juggling duo Scotty and Trink will awe audiences as they balance on their unicycles, juggling sharp knives. Also appearing on the main entertainment stage is Come Back Buddy, a vintage rock and roll band playing the hits of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and of course, Buddy Holly.
The show has once again partnered with the AT&T Pioneers to be its official charity. The AT&T Pioneers were founded in 1911 and provide essential services within specific areas of the community, including the environment, education and social services. The charity will receive a $500 honorarium from the Pomona Harvest Festival, as well as half the proceeds from the shopping bag sales and all of the proceeds from the parcel check. The Pomona Harvest Festival is also recognizing the needs of the hungry during the holiday season and has partnered with Shepherd’s Pantry Food Bank to provide a $2 discount admission coupon to anyone who brings a non-perishable food contribution to the event.
Don’t miss the last chance to find that perfect, one-of-a-kind holiday gift at the Pomona Harvest Festival.
