Noe Valley Harvest Festival

The 4th Annual Noe Valley Harvest Festival is Saturday October 25th, 2008. Posters have popped up around the neighborhood, and organizers apparently spoke to the Noe Valley Voice, 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:

When: October 25, 10am - 5pm
Where: 24th between Church and Sanchez
Cost: Free
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!"

Schedule of Events (Main Stage):
10:30-11:30 James Lick Rock Band
11:30 Kids Costume Contest
12:15-1:15 Playdate (family rock band)
1:30 Dog Costume Contest
1:45 Pie-Eating Contest
2:00-3:30 Groovus (funk band)
4:00-5:00 The Nitecaps (blues band)

10:00-3:00 Hayride, free for kids

Raffle: The poster says to check out the website for participating merchants selling tickets. No dice. But if you can figure out where to buy tickets you can win $500, dinner for 2 at Gary Danko or an iPod Nano. Best guess would be to check out the sponsors for raffle tickets. All proceeds go back to community improvement.

Parking: if you do have to drive to the Festival there is parking at James Lick Middle School.

Bonus: The Noe Valley Farmer's Market will be open all day.
