Whidbey Island Harvest Festival
October 3 - October 6
The Whidbey Island Harvest Festival is a new 4-day fall festival at the Whidbey Island Fairgrounds and Events Center in Langley, celebrating agriculture, food, wine, spirits, music, and arts and artisans on Whidbey Island. The event is a collaboration among The Port of South Whidbey, The Vintners and Distillers Association, Whidbey Island Grown, Whidbey Island Arts Council and Langley Chamber of Commerce.
The festival will consist of two days of classes and presentations (Thursday/Friday), culminating on the weekend (Saturday/Sunday) with live music, food and wine tasting, sales of locally made and grown arts, crafts, and harvest-themed activities such as pumpkin carving and scarecrow making.
Glean New Skills at Harvest Festival Workshops and Seminars
From fermentation to photography to painting to floral design to creative cooking and preserving, workshops and seminars offered at the 2019 Harvest Festival will teach you new skills and ignite your creative imagination.
The Harvest Festival begins with two days of workshops and seminars on October 3 and 4 at the Whidbey Island Fairgrounds and Events Center in Langley. Cooking, distilling and preserving classes include kimchi prep, craft distilling, edible wild plants, growing medicinal mushrooms, cider appreciation and using cannabis in cooking.
Gardening workshops include garlic planting, native plants, apple growing and six classes offered by South Whidbey Tilth on food growing.
Learn a new creative skill by exploring how to take better photos, encaustic painting, pastels, building clay ovens and making a clay slab wall pocket, felt art, ecofriendly floral design and floral jewelry and converting feed bags to totes.
And in a class by itself is a workshop called “Going Batty,” where you’ll learn interesting facts and dispel myths about bats from a naturalist and bat specialist.
Another stand-alone is a seminar entitled “How to Build a Six-figure Business from Scratch.”
