2015 Highland Maple Festival

In the small town of Monterey VA there is a great festival every year called the Highland Maple Festival. It runs for two weekends and this year’s 57th Annual festival is March 14 & 15 and again on March 20 & 21.  The brochure from the festival is a great highlight of the weekends activities.

What can you do at the festival?  A little of everything! Food, for starters, will be focused on everything maple – maple donuts, maple-glazed chicken, maple candy- and of course some local food will also be there to enjoy. There will also be about 150 contemporary and country artisans and crafters from more than a dozen states. Plan on taking a tour of the maple sugar camps or relax and enjoy some bluegrass music or cloggers. Just have fun on this great family outing!

Maple Festival entertainment is located at The Highland Center just 2 blocks south of the Courthouse.
