The 39th annual Toccoa Harvest Festival will be held Saturday, November 7 & Sunday, November 8, 2015. The event typically boasts some 200+ vendors. The fee for craft vendors is $40 per space. Since it is a craft festival all products must be "homemade, home baked or home grown". The Main Street Promotions Committee goes to great lengths to verify that this criterion is met. This is to give crafters a market for selling handmade products without having to sell their products competing with retail product prices.
Many local residents have already been accepted into the festival, as well as crafters from nearby communities in Northeast, Middle and South Georgia, and South Carolina, and as far away as Florida, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Types of crafts being sold at the event include handmade quilts, soaps, fountains, jewelry, wooden furniture, wooden accessories, and wooden toys, baskets, pottery, crocheted items, Christmas decorations, wreaths, jellies, pickles, candles, children's clothing, bottle wind chimes, aprons, birdhouses, a variety of baked goods, painted gourds, folk art, blankets, pillows, neck pillows, and painted glass.
The Toccoa Main Street Program wants to invite anyone who has a handmade, home grown, or home baked product to participate in the 39th Annual Toccoa Harvest Festival.
