This Saturday is the 5th Annual Noe Valley Harvest Festival and we find ourselves repeating what we wrote last year:
Posters have popped up around the neighborhood, and organizers apparently spoke to the Noe Valley Voice [Ed.--link is to current article], but the Festival website is sorely lacking (odd in such a tech savvy neighborhood). And... the poster instructs: "Please visit our website for more information." Nice idea, but with one week to go there is still almost nothing there.So here is the information from the poster (kindly sent to us by the entertainment/parking coordinator:
When: October 24, 10am - 5pm
Where: 24th between Church and Sanchez
What: "Celebrate exhibiting artists, craftspeople & non-profits which support our Noe Valley economy & community. With more than 60 different types of crafts, jewelry and artwork to choose from, support our exhibitors and get a jump on your holiday shopping!"
