The San Diego City College annual Fall Harvest Festival has been cancelled this year due to a lack of funding. The festival has occurred annually each October.

For the last three years, a private source had individually paid for all of the free food and events offered at the festival. That source is no longer able to fund the events due to personal reasons, they said in an email.

In the past, the Fall Harvest Festival included pumpkin carving, music, [email protected] farm tours, a film screening, and craft sales.

Last year, it was an official Food Day 2011 event.

The food offered was prepared in the campus cafeteria. All other assistance was obtained privately.  Usually just a handful of student volunteers worked the festival.

In place of the event, the dance department may invite children from the daycare center to dance in their costumes, but it has not yet been decided.

The Harvest Festival could return if another person volunteers to organize and fund it.
