Harvest Festival Canceled for 2022
Cancellation of the 2022 Whidbey Island Harvest Festival
As much as we have been looking forward to the return of the Whidbey Island Harvest Festival this year, it is with great regret that we must cancel this year’s event due to the excessive shortage of workers in all areas. It is extremely unfortunate that everyone involved from food producers to wineries, distilleries, brewers, artisans craftspeople and more just do not have enough labor to run their businesses much less participate in a festival. We are heartbroken not just for this event but for the strain it is putting on our community.
Due to these circumstances, we will not be able to produce this event. Fees will be returned to our vendors who have made application and paid fees.
We did not make this decision lightly, and hope that we can produce this event in coming years when businesses are in a better position to take part.
