Arvada Harvest Festival

We are the Best in Arvada again!!!

Thanks to all our faithful festival friends, the Arvada Harvest Festival has won the Best in Arvada title again in 2014.  So many exciting and new things this year - come all three days, September 5-7!

Theme, Parade, Booth Space and Carnival Information

While we will continue to be Colorado's "official" celebrants and observers of the Star Spangled Banner Bicentennial, we are bringing this commemoration "home" with a thematic focus on the experiences, history and importance of the "Pioneers of the American West." Parade entrants and other participants in the multiple elements of the 89th annual Arvada Harvest Festival are invited to use this theme as their guide.  Specific ideas will appear in specific areas of the website.

The booth reservation material is "live" - accessible by going to the Vendor tab on the left.  Folks with questions can still contact our "answer man", Carl Campanella, campanella0@msn.com.

The parade registration is "live" as well.   Parade is Saturday, September 6th, stepping off at 9 a.m.  Route is the same as last year - north on Olde Wadsworth, west on Ralston. Click on the tab to the left.  Note the required fields and deadline.

We are so grateful to Landmark Theatres for inviting us to place the Carnival in their parking lot.  Spin, whirl, hang upside down - and thank the folks at Landmark Theatres (and see a movie!!!)

Register NOW for the 9/11 Remembrance Run/Walk

Join military, veterans and other Americans as they run and walk to support those who serve and have served our country.  Go to www.runningguru.com/event/9112014 to register, or click on the tab for more information!

The Arvada Harvest Festival (Arvada Junior Chamber Foundation) is currently the only official observer/celebrant of the Star Spangled Banner Bicentennial in 2014.  The actual Bicentennial date is September 12, 2014 - but our National Anthem's anniversary warrants more than just one day of celebration.  So, we are offering the Star Spangled Scholars program for 5th graders in Arvada/Wheat Ridge Schools and other gathering of patriots.  We are partnering with the Sons of the American Revolution, the Sons of the War of 1812, local artisan/hands-on historian "Irish Lace" and others to provide experiential learning and inspiration around the founding of our country, the second American Revolutionary War (the War of 1812) and the penning of "Oh Say, Can You See . . . " by Francis Scott Key.

Contact Linda Olson Ferguson to schedule a visit by the Sons and their Patriot's Chest and "Irish Lace".  Visit www.cossar.us and click on Patriot's Chest to see the artifacts that are available to your students.  We need sponsors to make this all happen - so contact Linda Olson Ferguson for sponsorship opportunities - olefergie@msn.com.

Our Mission

The Arvada Harvest Festival and Parade commemorate the hearty history of the once primarily farming community of Arvada, Colorado. It is the second longest continuously running festival in Colorado. Beginning in October, 1925 to celebrate the completion of the first concrete road between Arvada and Denver, this community tradition has been overseen by Arvada citizens, the Arvada Chamber of Commerce and the Arvada Jaycees. Today, a variety of Arvada citizens and neighbors produce and host this cultural and historic celebration of Arvada, with the oversight of the Arvada Junior Chamber Foundation's 501 (c) 3 status. Our Festival and Parade stands out from the rest due to our commitment to value for families, old time festival traditions, and an emphasis on free or affordable activities for all.
