The Harvest of Hope Festival is an annual 3-day music fest in St. Augustine, FL and takes place during the first weekend of March. The festival is held at the St. John's County Fairgrounds. The festival was launched in 2009 to help raise awareness for the Harvest of Hope Foundation.
The Harvest of Hope Foundation is a nonprofit charity organization that provides educational grants, scholarships, emergency financial assistance, and service oriented aid to migrant farmworkers and seasonal farmworkers all accross the United States. The primary mission of our event is to help generate a higher level of social conscious regarding the multifaceted life and hardships of underpaid and overworked seasonal farmworkers, migrant farmworker and undocumented farmworkers.
The event emphasizes not only on migrant farmworkers but we also put focus on being family friendly (All Ages Event!) as well as being "Green" environmentally conscious. In addition, we are proud to boast that our musical line up will showcase not only a large group of musicians who are donating their time and performances to the cause, but will also showcase a variety of performance artist, indie arts & crafts, indie filmmakers, progressive musicians from around the globe, non-profits businesses, local area businesses, and progressive organizations.
While on-site you'll find incredible music on 3 daytime stages, eclectic culture, quality art, and crafts, delicious food and drinks, great microbrews, ice, an ATM machine, a General Store, and more. St. Augustine, Florida is a small town with a great natural food co-op, and outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and swimming.
