Celebrate the changing of the seasons and all that autumn has to offer at the fourth annual Arizona Harvest Fest and Open Air Market. This family-friendly event on Saturday, November 10 is free and will feature more than 150 merchants purveying a huge selection of products and services including holiday gifts, home décor and furnishings, jewelry, clothing, art, home improvements, health and wellness services and products and much more.
The Harvest Fest will take place at Dr. A.J. Chandler Park, located at 178 E. Commonwealth Ave. in Chandler. The festivities will kick off at 9 a.m. and run until 4 p.m. The free event will include a bounty of activities that appeal to all ages.
“Arizona Harvest Fest is about giving back to the community and making the most of the cooler weather while enjoying a Sunday afternoon of fun, shopping, great music and food,” said Landon Evans, owner of HDE Agency the event’s organizer.
A full schedule of live entertainment includes performances by local bands D. on Darox & the Melody Joy Bakers, Pick & Holler, Jim Bachman & the Day Drinkers & Blain Long to name a few. A pumpkin toss, pumpkin decorating, pie eating contest, corn shucking, cake walk and kids zone will add to festival goers’ fun. Adults will enjoy the flavors of the season in the beer garden featuring local pumpkin ales and seasonal brews.
A portion of proceeds from the event will go to ICAN, an East Valley based nonprofit that provides free, family-centered services and programs aimed at equipping youth to achieve personal and academic success. ICAN goes beyond being just an after-school program for at-risk youth by building the critical skills they need to be productive and responsible members of the community.
