About the 2014 Greenfield Harvest Festival

Downtown Greenfield plays host to the Greenfield Harvest Festival on Sunday, Oct. 19, 2014, a free music festival with bands and traditional dance troupes to entertain you. You'll experience music from the best of local and regional cumbia, banda and rock and roll bands on three stages! Please join us at 8:30am for the 1K/5K Run, and at 11:15 for the parade to kick off the Festival on the right foot! We have planned an afternoon that is certain to please the entire family, filled with music and art. There will be food, crafts and artisans along El Camino Real and a Car Show along El Camino Real at Apple Street! Bring your kids and let them explore their creative sides. The entire family will enjoy the interactive activities located throughout the event site. As you walk El Camino Real, local community organizations have planned many activities: a petting zoo and pony rides in the Napa Auto Parts lot, bubble stomp and street chalk art. First Night will have a pumpkin patch at the library with a variety of booths: souvenir photos, scarecrow-making and maracas. Be sure to check out our Day of the Dead table and participate in the "Junk Jams" as well! Together, First Night and the City of Greenfield plan to bring the community together to celebrate all our cultures through the arts. Greenfield Harvest Festival is produced by First Night Monterey, supported by grants.

La Prima Griega

La Prima Griega is a Rock en Español band composed of three young men who just absolutely love music! Their name (The Greek Cousin) has an interesting story. A friend of the band set up a blind date with the guys and a group of young women visiting from Greece. They were all very excited! Turns out that their friend forgot to mention the women were actually "young at heart." Regardless, the guys decided to forget the age difference and enjoy the date by dancing the night away and just having fun. They had the time of their lives, and decided to name their band after the "young women."
