Join us for the City of Berkeley's annual Harvest Festival, a chance to honor the Fall season with live music and kids' activities.
This event promises to be an exciting day for the whole family. There will be live music, a seed swap, food contests, and booths where you can meet City employees from various departments, including 311, Public Works, Aging Services, Mental Health, Police, Fire, Library, and the Rent Board. Don't miss the Ride Electric event at the Cedar Rose basketball courts where you can check out electric cars and test ride electric bikes and scooters. You can also learn about discounts, rebates, and more from local electric vehicle owners and eBike riders.
The "Kids Zone" will have plenty of activities for children, including a zipline, giant inflatables, scarecrow making, pumpkin decorating, petting zoo, face painting, and carnival games with prizes. Toddlers can enjoy the "Tot's Zone" with a small jumper, arts and crafts, sandbox, face painting, and more.
