The San Mateo Harvest Festival Returns Nov 10-12

The San Mateo Harvest Festival is one of the largest indoor original arts and crafts shows on the West Coast and each year it returns to San Mateo in our neighboring event center at 1346 Saratoga Drive. 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.

Shop hundreds of artisans of American handmade and embellished art and crafts featuring photography, fine jewelry, specialty food, blown glass, wood art, metalwork and more. During your shopping and crafting you can support the Peninsula Humane Society/SPCA by purchasing a Harvest Festival Shopping Bag. This private non-profit organization accepts all animals in need of care. Buy a bag and support the 2017 San Mateo bag booth host, the PHS/SPCA today.

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

The whole family will enjoy the interactive KidZone Craft Activities hosted by the Art Attack, where children can participate in hands-on crafts like watercolor painting. Plus, New York Life’s Child ID Program will be hosting free digital fingerprinting with photos and vital contact information.
