Pleasanton Heritage Festival - Art & Craft Festival.
Arts and Crafts Festival
From the MLA web site:
Over 200 artist displays will be lined up along historic tree-lined Main Street. This year festival attendees will find a variety of high quality hand-crafted work made and sold by the exhibiting artisan. Thirty percent of the art & craft displays will be fine art representative of a wide array of mediums from two-dimensional acrylic paintings to hand-made mixed media wall-hangings.
The theme of the festival will focus on the "days of yesteryear". Throughout you will be able to view vintage artifacts of the past, watch spinners in action, admire the intricate artwork created by the bobbin-lace ladies and be amazed at the end results produced by local woodcarvers.
Alviso Adobe Community Park: As you stroll along Main Street don't miss seeing the Second Annual Pioneers of Pleasanton display sponsored by the Tri-Valley Herald. A fine collection of vintage photos and heirloom pieces will be on loan to the festival by two local founding families.
At the south end of the festival, Abbie Street will be temporarily turned into Abbie Farm—a live display of farm animals presented by Abbie 4-H members. And across the way will be a working blacksmith shop. Stop by and purchase a personalized horseshoe as a momento of this year's Heritage Festival.
Sponsor: Pleasanton Downtown Association.
