Columbia staging ‘Harvest Festifall’ Saturday, Sunday
COLUMBIA —The Columbia Chamber of Commerce hosts its 33rd annual Harvest Festifall on Saturday, Oct. 14, and Sunday, Oct. 15 on the shady streets of Columbia State Historic Park. The event runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
“I am truly looking forward to being a part of this fun event filled with amazing artwork and happy people in an absolutely wonderful atmosphere,” said first-time vendor Leanne Saldana, who sells hats and jewelry inspired by her Native American heritage.
Amidst fall decorations, more than 50 vendors dressed in period costumes sell handmade crafts including quilts, candles, home décor, stained glass, ceramics, paintings, jewelry, glasswork, woodwork, toys and hats. Returning vendors include The Bird’s Nest, John Cline Crafts, Judesigns, Mary Kennedy Bead Art, Mother Lode Weavers and Spinners, Murphys Mustard Company, My Silver Lining, WATCH Resources and more.
“I’ve been a part of the Festifall for at least ten years and I love the family-friendly atmosphere,” said Jan Mangili, who will sell decorated glass bottles.
The old-fashioned harvest festival is for all ages, with free admission. Local musicians and dancers perform in the gazebo and on the street, and there are activities for the children, who can have their faces painted, participate in craft demonstrations and search for the perfect Halloween pumpkin. And the Harvest would not be complete without caramel and candy apples from Nelson’s Candy Kitchen.
