St. Helena Harvest Festival 2017!

Welcome to the website for the 2017 St Helena Harvest Festival!

For over 30 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, 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 2017 Harvest Festival. For more information please contact Haidi Arias; Recreation Director, at or leave a voicemail at (707)963-5706 or (707) 968-9222.

St. Helena’s Annual Hometown Harvest Festival (Saturday, October 15, 2016) is a great way to celebrate the end of the harvest season in Napa Valley and experience the beginning of the beautiful fall foliage. The festival starts with the legendary pet parade through downtown St Helena. The festival features live music, food and craft booths, wine pouring stations, a kids carnival, a 5k run and a kids run.
