Sisters Oregon Harvest Faire
Celebrate Local Food, Local Arts, and Lots of Fun!
SISTERS, OR--(Marketwire - September 12, 2008) - The Sisters Oregon Chamber of Commerce today
announced the 27th annual Harvest Faire. This event will be held October 11
and 12th in Sisters Oregon from 10AM to 4PM. Over 200 vendors selling
quality handcrafted items will be in attendance with items such pottery,
metal art, photography, painting, jewelry, clothing, furniture, home décor
and much more.
If you have interest in fresh local food, gardening, supporting a local
economy, improving the environment, or having a good time, then you will
not want to miss the Sisters Oregon Harvest Faire. This event boasts two
full days of hands-on activities, educational opportunities, great food and
good old-fashioned fun.
Flute maker Charles Littleleaf will be a special guest. Littleleaf was
featured in the September 2007 issue of Cowboys and Indians magazine. He
creates custom-ordered flutes that can take up to several months to
complete, and he is currently making a flute for Willie Nelson. Saturday's
entertainment will be Rodrigo Espinoza, a 5-year veteran of the harvest
faire. He will be entertaining guests with his music that is classified as
easy listening, but carries with it a South American beat. Tyler Spencer
will be featuring his Didjeridoo, an Australian instrument often used for
healing purposes. Michael and Linda Soeby will be featuring their
handcrafted Father Christmas figurines. Don Zylius, a local Sisters artist
will be featuring his watercolors, and Linda Jacobsen will be displaying
her unique form of pleated fabric art. Another popular artist that will be
featured is Mitch Deadrick, who will display his pottery. David Johns will
be selling his salt-free spices and sauces from the Oregon Flavor Rack, and
Carol Morrison will be featuring her and her daughter's wares from
"Handmade by Mom and Me."
A poster designed by Sisters Artist Barbara Berry commemorating the event
will be available for $5.
Of course, you will want to buy some tasty snacks or a delicious meal from
the local food vendor, and the Harvest Faire is a great place to shop for
unique, local, goods of all sorts. For more information about the Harvest
