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 Nov. 9 – 11 at the CSI Expo Center. The holiday arts and crafts show is spearheaded by students in CSI’s Collegiate DECA Club, formerly the DEX Club.
DECA co-advisor and Hospitality Management professor Dianne Jolovich said the students have lined up 190 vendors featuring jewelry, candles, ceramics, holiday decorations, wood and metal crafts, fudge, kitchen novelties, dolls and doll clothing, games, toys, and 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 beverages.
Harvest Time Festival hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9 and 10 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11. Proceeds from the show between 2 and 4 p.m. Sunday will be donated to the CSI Refugee Center.
Admission is still just $2 per person. Children under 12 will be admitted free. Admission tickets will enter customers in raffles that will be held every 25 minutes throughout the show. Other CSI student clubs that are helping with the event are Horticulture, Equine, Veterinary Technology, and the Rodeo teams. Shoppers are advised that plenty of parking will be available near the Herrett Center for Arts and Science and that a free shuttle bus will run between the two parking lots every 15 minutes. No parking is allowed on North College Road.
