Sunday, September 18, 2022
Piedmont Park

This year's Harvest Festival will feature all the fun events and activities you've come to expect. The Piedmont Education Foundation Carnival is back and in full swing, the main stage will be jumping with the Jazz Festival, and the Food Trucks will be fired up alongside the Village Market Farmer's market as usual. Also returning, as the heart of the event, will be the Piedmont Edibles Contest! Grow on Piedmont!

Edibles Contest

Featuring the best homegrown and homemade foods from Piedmont, the Edible's contest is your chance to show off your culinary prowess. Use the online Edibles Contest Entry Form to enter and for more information about the contest rules and categories. So dust off those recipe cards, roll out the dough, and get ready for some fun at this year's Harvest Festival! 

Piedmont Jazz Festival

Enjoy live music by local musicians on the Harvest Festival stage from 12:00–4:00 pm.

Community Groups Tables

If your community group is interested in having a table at the Harvest Festival, please contact Jessica Pomey. We do not allow groups to sell anything at their table during the Festival.

Art Show

A wonderful part of the Harvest Festival is the display of local artists around the Tea House. We are now accepting applications. If you live in Piedmont and would like to submit your art for consideration, please contact Jane Reed (510) 654-2670 for additional information.

Scarecrow Alley

The theme for the Scarecrow Alley silent auction at the festival is "This is Halloween". This treasured tradition is a great class project! It's a fun way to meet the parents and kids in your child's class. Ideally, a family in each class will volunteer to coordinate the creation of a scarecrow. Scarecrows are usually put together in a backyard, a park, or school playground and they need to be delivered to Piedmont Park on the morning of the festival.

Think beyond straw—scarecrows can be made of any material. Have a superhero or animal costume? Stuff it and make a head out of papier mâché! Ask your kids their favorite animated creature, or talk to them about yours. You don't need to be an engineer to make a scarecrow and the kids love to participate. Scarecrows make fantastic Halloween décor! You will see them on display all over town after the Harvest Festival!
