Food, fun and fellowship will be on offer this Saturday, Oct. 5, as Neskowin Valley School presents its 37th Annual Harvest Festival.

The festival is the independent school’s biggest fundraising event of the year and promises a full slate of engaging activities to keep guests entertained all day.

Festival-goers of all ages can dance the day away to live music and browse the outdoor market where local farmers and artisans will offer produce, fresh-pressed apple cider and artisan crafts. Children can enjoy a variety of activities, field games, a garden tea party, arts and crafts, face painting and more.

Great food will be available for purchase at the Slab Creek Grill and the Bakery Cafe. A beer garden will feature craft beer from Beachcrest Brewing Company, Rusty Truck Brewing and Pelican Brewing. There will also be a wine table, sampling and pouring a variety of wines.

Throughout the day, guests can bid in a silent auction boasting more than 100 items donated by local businesses, valued at more than $10,000.

“We’ve received overwhelming support from many local businesses to possibly make this our best fundraising event yet,” said Neskowin parent Beth Venti.

The festival will run from 10 am to 5:30 pm at Neskowin Valley School campus, located just south of Neskowin at 10005 Slab Creek Road.
