Local talent and established acts will provide a bounty of music from the 2003 Hood River Valley Harvest Fest entertainment stage. Music is scheduled every day during the Oct. 17-19 event that draws more than 20,000 people annually to Hood River Expo Center. Entertainment is free at the 21st annual festival.
Gorge musicians will be showcased on opening night, Friday, Oct. 17, and will dominate the stage Sunday, Oct. 19. On Saturday, Oct. 18, a variety of youth groups and popular acts will perform.
Entertainment begins at 5 p.m. Friday with fanciful groove of Swing Crew. Two local bluegrass bands, All Night Station (formerly No Depression) and Pacific Crest Bluegrass Band, follow with 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. sets.
Student artists — and athletes — will get attention Saturday. Hood River Tae Kwon Do kicks off the day with an 11 a.m. martial arts demonstration. Showbitz, featuring some of the youngest talent of the day, performs at 11:30 a.m. At noon, Hood River Middle School Choir takes the stage, followed by a Hood River Valley High School pop-jazz presentation at 12:30 p.m. Hood River Mexican Folkdance 4-H Club performs at 2 p.m.
Hood River News will publish a full entertainment schedule in the Oct. 15 edition.
