NOTE: the planned June 27/28 show has been cancelled due to Covid-19 concerns. The August 2020 show will go on, watch for updates at

It wouldn’t be summer in Highlands without the Highlands Village Square Art & Craft Shows.

The show's name was changed in 2020 to Highlands Mountaintop Art & Craft Show, as they are sponsored by Mountain Top Rotary of Highlands. Proceeds go to their many important charitable causes, such as the Emergency Council in Highlands and efforts to eradicate polio around the world. Now in their 15th year, these shows are well known for regionally-made fine art, crafts and rustic furniture. High standards mean shoppers will find amazing creations to enhance their homes and lives, or to share as gifts.

Just check out the picture gallery to see some of the exciting products you will find there. You can find photos and updates on our facebook page and website as well:

The shows are held in Kelsey-Hutchinson "Founders" Park at Pine and N. 5th Streets in downtown Highlands, NC. This beautifully designed and landscaped park has public restrooms plus a new pavilion for live music. The kids will have a plast playing in the interactive water fountain. Grab some really good food at Fressers Courtyard Cafe in the Village Square next door. Local food vendors will be offering a variety of food and drinks to enjoy at one of the shady picnic tables in the park.

Festival hours are Saturday and Sunday 10a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is FREE. Children (and dogs) are welcome.
