Harvest Festival


ANNUAL HARVEST FESTIVAL!
THE 2015 FESTIVAL WAS SATURDAY OCTOBER 3rd FROM 7 am - 4:00 pm














 
The 2015 Harvest Festival was a huge success!  Great weather, entertainment, vendors and delicious food!     
 
This year’s festivities included:

  • The Pancake Breakfast, hosted by the Talent Chamber of Commerce with the food and labor donated by the Iron Skillet in Phoenix.  They had a rousing turnout and are already planning changes and improvements for next year. 
  • The Runs were well ran by lots of early morning folks and well organized by the Southern Oregon Runners 
  • The Parade, always a favorite, was interesting and entertaining. Congratulations to Talent's Grand Marshal JUDY CASAD!  
  • Darby Stricker and City Council people modeled fitness and health by cycling the parade route.  
  • The activities in Old Town Park included the Rock Climbing Wall, Petting Zoo, s Clowning: Jill & Daryl Fjeldheim, ScienceWorks and Ballet Folklorico, face painting, cotton candy and more, kept hundreds of kids and adults busy all day
  • The entertainment on the City Hall stage – H’aena, Salsa Brava and Maestro & the Captain’s Flat 5 Flim Flam kept our toes tapping and bodies moving
  • Our ever popular Harvest Home area, where apples were pressed into cider, weaving demonstrations and scarecrow building  kept folks of all ages restfully engaged while listening to live acoustic music
  • Our expanded Wine and Beer Garden, under more shade, provided a family friendly respite to enjoy food and community
  • Arts, crafts and farmers market vendors offered their wares
  • Local favorite foods and snacks helped sate that lunchtime hunger

AND our new Community Center – was officially opened and tours were conducted by City Manager, Tom Corrigan.
 
To create an event like the Harvest Festival it takes a great deal of dedication from the Committee members and support from our Community.
