Take Caltrain to the Harvest Festival and Get Discounted Admission

 

Art & craft enthusiasts from throughout the Peninsula will flock to the 2018 Harvest Festival Original Art & Craft Show at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. The festival will be held this weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Sunday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and Caltrain is on hand to get attendees there and back again.

The Convention Center is a mile walk from the San Jose Diridon Caltrain Station, but attendees can transfer to VTA’s 902 to get to the convention center if air quality hasn’t improved by the weekend.

The Harvest Festival has been held for 45 years in various locations throughout California. This year’s festival in San Jose will feature over hundreds of artisans, specializing in clothing, jewelry, specialty foods, toys, holiday decor and more. Patrons can listen to live music and entertainment, enjoy festival foods and visit a hands-on KidZone where kids can decorate gingerbread cookies.

Passengers can receive a $2 discount for the event by picking up a Take One Harvest Festival brochure onboard trains and onboard SamTrans buses.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain has enjoyed more than four years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 average weekday riders earlier this year. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad is celebrating 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reducing diesel emissions 84 percent by 2040 and adding more service to more stations.
