St. Helena Harvest Festival 2015!

Welcome to the website for the 2015 St Helena Harvest Festival!

For 29 years the Harvest Festival has been St. Helena’s most-beloved Fall event for the young and old.  The day-long family event has something for everyone starting with the early morning Fun Run, followed by the legendary Pet Parade, and ending with the Harvest Festival itself. The Harvest Festival will feature live music, a kids carnival, a wine lounge, a food alley, and an array of arts and crafts.  Local artists, beer and wine makers, farmers, musicians and non-profit organizations lend their talent each year to make this event a great success.

The St. Helena Recreation Department is looking forward to running the 2015 Harvest Festival. For more information please contact Haidi Arias; Recreation Director, at or leave a voicemail at (707)963-5706 or (707)968-9222.

Please come back and visit us in the coming weeks. We will continue to update this site as more details are confirmed.

We are excited for this years Harvest Festival!
