Feasty Fest was issued as a Special Edition Event Piece in the fall of 2003 for Harmony Kingdom's Feasty Fest Events held at select HK dealers.

There are 2700 pieces worldwide with the standard coloring and 360 pieces worldwide with vivid coloring. The standard US interior shows a cooked turkey on a table. A special variation for the US shows a mouse on the platter (495 pieces). A special variation in the UK shows a fly on the plate (45 pieces). There is also a unique jeweled version, of which only one was made.

Carved by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert, Feasty Fest was produced as a box figurine in England. The Feasty Fest offered here is a solid body prototype, one of approximately five worldwide.

HK Secrets: A turkey peers out from amid the goodies spilling from a cornucopia, or horn of plenty. Squashed among the pumpkins you'll find Peter Calvesbert's signature mouse. "Pete" is carved on the underside of the back of the cornucopia. "Nelly" on the underside of a loaf of bread is a possible name for his second child. The shell comes from the artist's son, Sam, who spent his first seaside holiday at Tenby Beach in Wales.

This Feasty Fest piece prototype has tremendous detail. It is a beautiful expression of a true "Cornucopia," a Horn of Plenty. The body of the piece is a wonderfully carved basket in the shape of a turkey's body. Flowing out of the basket is a myriad of all kinds of fruits and vegetables. Centered above them is the head of a turkey. There is just about everything you can imagine needed to complete a Thanksgiving Feast! There is corn, strawberries, apples, pumpkins, even grapes and a bottle of milk! The "oddities" on the piece are the two seashells. Peter carved these to commemorate his son, Sam's, first seaside holiday at Tenby Beach in Wales. Peter's signature mouse is peeping out from among the group of pumpkins on the front of the piece. Pete carved his name on the underside of the back of the Cornucopia. The name "Nelly" is carved under the loaf of bread. It was a possible consideration for the name of his second child.

The prototype has all the Hallmarks on it. This includes the number "1" for Version 1. However, there never was a Version 2. There is no crown stamp, as there is no lid. The bottom of the base is signed in a very unusual manner. CORNUCOPIA PROTOTYPE is written on the bottom of the base. However, Cornucopia is spelled incorrectly. On the piece itself, Peter carved the word "CORNUCOPIA." When the prototype was marked on the bottom of the base whoever did it spelled Cornucopia incorrectly. It reads, "CORNACOPIA PROTOTYPE." The letter "P" is also printed on the base of the piece. This prototype is a standard color version.
