Yes, real people live in Las Vegas and they have favorite things to do that don’t necessarily involve gambling or live entertainment.
One of those things is to attend and shop at the Harvest Festival Original Art & Craft Show. This show has been coming to Las Vegas for decades, normally at the Cashman Center. But with the closing of Cashman, the show has moved. This weekend, the Harvest Festival debuts a new location at Pavillion 2 at the World Market Center.
Arts, crafts and lots of specialty foods are on sale….with lots of samples included. Shopping the Harvest Festival is loads of fun, though the aisles can get crowded.
I was invited to visit the show this year on set-up day and was able to speak with a number of the exhibitors (one of whom is a former TV performer).
I also filmed an interview with Brenda Meehan, who has been working with the show as its PR maven for years. I needn’t write much about the show because Brenda literally “says it all” early on in the attached video. She calls the Harvest Festival a “magical marketplace”.
So….enjoy the video!
P.S. I attended the Festival briefly on Friday immediately after it opened. I spent some money. I was not alone.
