About the 2013 Greenfield Harvest Festival

Downtown Greenfield plays host to the Greenfield Harvest Festival on Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013, a free music festival where we will have 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! 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, art, food, crafts, artisans, and a Car Show! Bring your kids along 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, pony rides, bubble stomp and street chalk art. First Night will have a pumpkin patch at the library with a variety of booths: photos, scarecrow-making and maraca. Be sure to check out our Day of the Dead table as well! Together, First Night and the City of Greenfield plan to bring the community together to celebrate all our cultures through the arts. ¡Viva! Greenfield Music and Art Festival is produced by First Night Monterey, supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation.

La Chamba

Coming from humble working-class Los Angeles communities, La Chamba decided to amplify the realities that made them who they are by calling themselves "La Chamba" (the job). La Chamba began with a love and respect for Peruvian Chicha music. Its deep Amazonian Cumbia groove along with the psychedelic feel, inspired them to create their own unique blend of the sound. They were moved by its personal and social message, also by the parallels that exist in the pulse of barrios across Latino America. Their audience is as much a part of their performance as they are - encouraging and electrifying the people to let loose, and release their grind on the dance floor!
