Portland’s harvest fest to reap the goods
September 22, 2012 by Mark
With the turning of the season comes the Autumn Equinox and Harvest Arts Festival. It is at this time of year when people gear down from their active summer activities and rejuvenate with a period of relaxation, reflection, and rest. It is also the time of year, however, when 30 Portland and area fine artisans and crafters show and sell products that they have created by hand at this seasonal festival, which gets going today.
The fair will feature natural healers, jewelry, photography, sculpture, painting, clothing, and other hand-crafted products. There will be an installation of a “Mabon Alter”, towards which guests are welcome to contribute as well. A percentage of the vendors’ proceeds will benefit the Portland Artists Clinic and there will be munchies provided courtesy of La Vida Veggie. The festival continues tomorrow, September 23, andboth days will have live music and entertainment for the children, as well as many other activities to get everybody in an autumnally adventurous frame of mind.
Poster printing and digital flyer printing may have been used to promote the annual equinox to member of the community and the surrounding regions. Admission to this fair is free and everyone is welcome to attend. Both today and tomorrow, the festival runs from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm at the property of Tamera and John Lovely-Caroll, 8700 SW Oleson Road in Portland, Oregon.
