Thanks to all our faithful festival friends, the Arvada Harvest Festival has won the Best in Arvada title again in 2014.
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.
Founded and created in late 2013, Star Spangled Scholars is on a roll. We began humbly, supported by a generous grant from Daniels Fund and in-kind support from Arvada's Country Buffet. We are committed to offering this interactive, hands on history program to kids and families free of charge. Our mission is to build "heart" knowledge of what it took to found our great country, to settle the wild American West - and in doing so, building a sense of "Americanism" in our kids that is rooted in the appreciation of our founders' determination, resourcefulness and sacrifice. We've hosted two open houses, provided programming for fifth graders at Arvada K-8 and Hackberry Hill Elementary, made presentations to the spring break camp kids at Buckley AFB, presented to a "Whiz Kids" group in Lakewood and provided special Father's Day programming for the Arvada VFW #4331 membership and their kids. We offered a special summer camp program for 150 kids at the Susan M. Duncan YMCA on June 30th. The "campers" made "jumping jack dolls" and "salt cellars" (aka, cootie catchers). Kids of all ages sang rousing versions of "Do your ears hang low . . . " and the Star Spangled Banner! Harvest Festival attendees are encouraged to visit the "Star Spangled Scholars Living History Camp" in the Kid Zone at McIlvoy Park. School and other kid/youth group presentations will commence for academic year 2014-15. Contact Linda Olson Ferguson to request a presentation! Also - check out the Channel 8 coverage of this summer's Star Spangled Scholars presentation at the Susan M Duncan YMCA, http://youtu.be/uqZkYlaUmns.
On Monday, February 3, 2014, representatives from the Arvada Harvest Festival and the Creator of Star Spangled Scholars received a proclamation from Arvada's Mayor and City Council honoring Star Spangled Scholars/Arvada Harvest Festival for being the official celebrants of the Star Spangled Banner Bicentennial in 2014. "Irish Lace", historian from Hands on History Colorado was also on hand to receive the honor.
