Celebrate abundance and reap the rewards of harvest time! See you at the 25th Annual Harvest Festival at the Jackson County Expo!
For over two decades, The Expo has proudly hosted the Harvest Festival – a celebration of the beauty and bounty of Southern Oregon and Northern California. The Harvest Festival is a great opportunity for families to enjoy the fruits of summer labor and welcome the arrival of fall.
Explore how food is grown and harvested, check out local livestock on display, and enjoy arts and crafts, outstanding photography, and other exhibits that celebrate the regional harvest and the abundance of fall.
Eat, drink, and make merry at this year’s harvest festival!
The 2014 Harvest Festival features food, drink, music and lots of old-fashioned fun for the whole family. Some of the highlights include:
