The College of Southern Idaho’s largest annual student-run event of the year, the Harvest Time Festival, is set for its three-day run November 10-12, at the CSI Expo Center. The holiday arts and crafts show is spearheaded by the CSI Hospitality Tourism and Events students with help from Hosteurs, Veterinary Technology, Equine, Rodeo and Dental Hygiene Clubs as well as culinary students from Twin Falls High School and Canyon Ridge High School.
Hospitality Management Professor and club advisor Dianne Jolovich said, “students have lined up more than 200 vendors featuring jewelry, candles, ceramics, holiday decorations, wood and metal crafts, fudge, kitchen novelties, hands-on craft making classes, metal art, wood art and so much more”.
CSI Hosteurs Club students will sell food throughout the show, including loaded baked potatoes, homemade chili, Navajo tacos, scones bread bowl soup, and Brioche artisan donuts with a variety of toppings and beverages.
Harvest Time Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, November 10, and 11. And, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, November 12.
