Village Square Art & Craft Show
by Cynthia Strain
With so many opportunities for dining, shopping and enjoying nature in the Highlands area, it’s the perfect place to plan a vacation. So plan now to come the weekend of August 24 and 25 to attend the Highlands Village Square Art & Craft Show.
The show is held in beautiful Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park on Pine Street downtown. It runs from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. both days, rain or shine, and there’s no admission charge.
Paintings, prints and photography will be accompanied by exquisite crafts like turned wood, art glass, sculpture and home accessories. There’s a great selection of rustic furniture, as well as pottery, jewelry, and other wonderful things. The 75-plus artisans come from all over the mountains of Western North Carolina, north Georgia, South Carolina, and eastern Tennessee. This is your chance to meet the talented people who pour their heart and soul into their amazing creations so that you can enjoy them for years to come.
We promise you won’t go hungry, because the sponsor of the show, Mountain Top Rotary of Highlands, is serving up tacos and drinks. Fressers Courtyard Café will be open in Highlands Village Square for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner as well.
Bring the kids and the dog for a lively and fun time. Watch demonstrations of jewelry or broom making and leather-work. Enjoy live music on the stage, and indulge in some kettle corn. And support the great work that Mountain Top Rotary does in our community.
