Make the most of the gorgeous weather this fall by attending the Ventura Harvest Festival. This annual event runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, giving you a full weekend of opportunities to attend.
Ventura Harvest Festival: Important Details
The Ventura Harvest Festival is conveniently located at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, so it should be very easy to find. On Friday and Saturday, it is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday has slightly reduced hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is a small general admission fee of $9, with discounts for seniors, those in the military, and teens. Best of all, those 12 and under get in for free. You can even park on-site for just $5, so you don’t have to worry about where you will find space for your car. There is a food court area so you don’t have to worry about bringing something to eat unless you want to.
Ventura Harvest Festival: Live Music
One of the main attractions at the Ventura Harvest Festival is the excellent music throughout the day. There is an outdoor stage where you will be able to listen to music from 11 to 4:45 on Friday and Saturday and 10:45 to 4:30 on Sunday. Hyjinx Duo and the Mary White Band will be alternating performances, with each group taking the stage three times daily for 45-minute stretches. There is also strolling entertainment between 9:30 and 4:30 or 5:30 daily from Big Mama Sue & Fast Freddie, Fables of the West, and WC Willy as Friendly Frankie.
Ventura Harvest Festival: Arts and Crafts
While some people attend the Ventura Harvest Festival for the music, most come to check out the arts and crafts on display and for purchase. You will be glad to know that most of the vendors accept credit cards in addition to cash.
