The Annual San Mateo Harvest Festival 2016 Returns (Nov 11-13)

The San Mateo Harvest Festival Original Arts and Crafts Show is one of the largest indoor shows on the West Coast and each year it returns to San Mateo in our neighboring event center. The event gathers thousands of handmade arts and crafts, features high-energy performers, the KidZone, delicious foods and much more. Get ready for a weekend of non-stop holiday shopping, entertainment and local family fun, just a short walk from our doorstep at Bay Meadows.




Throughout the day you can enjoy live stage entertainment with festival favorites Tom Rigney & Flambeau, Scotty and Trink and strolling performers Mama Claus & Eddie the Elf plus Fables of the West who wander the aisles to entertain as you shop.

A number of local non-profits will also be in attendance.  Nature of Art offers Earth-friendly art supplies and handcrafted crayons.  Gingerbread on the Go, co-sponsor of the 2016 San Mateo Harvest Festival® KidZone, will be on-site offering gingerbread crafts for kids. The Peninsula Humane Society, an open-door shelter which accepts all animals brought to them, will be hosting the Bag and Parcel Check booths.
