The first Highlands Village Square Art & Craft Show was organized in 2006 by coordinator Cynthia Strain, and they have grown considerably since. They are now sponsored by MountainTop Rotary of Highlands and held in the beautiful Kelsey-Hutchinson "Founders" Park on Pine Street in downtown Highlands. The shows specialize in high quality regional art and crafts. Highlands, NC is an up-scale resort community near Asheville, Atlanta and Greenville. We stay cool in the summers due to our elevation of 4118'
Featured items include fine art originals and prints, including photography, rustic furniture and home accessories, fireplace mantles, pottery, a wide array of jewelry styles, children books, weaving, glass art, wrought iron home accessories, turned wood, painted silk scarves, folk art, and much more!
Watch demonstrations of pottery and jewelry making. Enjoy food served by the Rotary Club and The Courtyard Cafe in the Village Square next door. The local mountain dulcimer group provides music.
It is a great experience. And when you are done with the show, just walk a block to Main Street and "The Hill" to get a taste of our unique shopping and dining opportunities.
Oh, and please give a donation to the Rotary Club to help them help our community, such as the food pantry and free medical clinic, as well as their efforts to eradicate polio around the globe.
