It's Harvest Celebration Time!

There are soooooo many harvest-themed events of interest to area gardeners, foodies & homesteaders this fall. It's a busy time, but it's always worthwhile to get out to at least one food-focused celebration if you can.

Hoes Down

Some are free & others require tickets, some are fundraisers for local farms & others are raising money for nonprofits that help get fresh food to area kids, some are in Davis & others are scattered throughout Yolo County and beyond, and all are family friendly. Check out the list and see if there's something that appeals to you! Events are listed in chronological order.

Know of a September or October local, harvest-related event I forgot about? Send me an email and I'll add it to the list.


  1. It looks as if you can eat your way through September - - - AND have fun at the same time.
    Will the dancers be at the Coop events?

    1. Good question! I'm not sure. They are dancing at the Davis Art Center fundraiser tonight, and also downtown at the 2nd Friday Art About. Sometimes we don't find out about certain events until very close to the performance date, so the Co-op faire is certainly a possibility.
