GREENFIELD HARVEST FESTIVAL RETURNS FOR 2022!

Begin your day with the community parade which kicks off the festivities at 11:15am. Both sides of El Camino Real will be filled with live music, art, community organizations, food vendors, and artisans and craft vendors. We also have activites for the little ones, art activities, and a car show. We look forward to celebrating Greenfield's 75th Anniversary! You will enjoy 5 hours of entertainment for the entire family, with music venues and a stage featuring traditional dance troupes.

SEE THE POSTER SUBMISSIONS FOR FIRST NIGHT 2023!

Since 2003, First Night Monterey staff has collaborated with CSUMB professor Bobbi Long and the Service Learning class for Publication Design students, engaging the students into a creative competition to design the annual First Night Monterey Poster and Buttons. FNM artists work with the design students from theme concept to design for five weeks in class until selection of the final design. The winner will have the opportunity to produce the graphics for print and web. Which is your favorite?
