An annual celebration of cooler weather, changing leaves and a bountiful fall season, Arizona Harvest Fest is set to roll up on Saturday, November 5, 2016 in Downtown Chandler from 4-11 p.m. Featuring live entertainment by Tribal Seeds, a reggae band from San Diego, Arizona Harvest Fest will offer a cornucopia of recreational fun for all ages.
With fall around the corner, I’m excited to bring another themed community style festival to Downtown Chandler. Harvest Fest will include nostalgic games, seasonal beer garden, food court and national entertainment. We’re also teaming up with United Food Bank and collecting food donations to help those in need. At HDE we focus on building signature events that offer something for everyone for all ages. We can’t wait to add an autumn touch to this seasonal celebration,” Landon Evans, event coordinator, HDE Agency.
Activities include pumpkin toss, pumpkin pageant, cornhole, pie eating contest, corn shucking, cake walk, hay maze, and a kid’s zone. Food and craft vendors will offer seasonal eats, treats, trinkets and gear. Enjoy the flavors of fall in the seasonal beer garden featuring local pumpkin ales and other brews.
