This coming fall, Highlands will celebrate its 5th Annual Culinary Weekend. This four- day destination event highlights Highlands’ majestic mountain location, unique retail shops, appealing accommodations and extraordinary cuisine.
We are excited to announce that this year’s Opening Night Celebration will be held at the esteemed Highlands Country Club on Thursday evening, November 10th at 7:00 p.m. Participating restaurants, chefs and wineries will be on hand to ignite taste buds and prepare you all for the weekend’s festivities. The Opening Night Celebration will also feature special guests, The Saucy Sisters, offering colorful commentary and Wacky Wine Quizzes with special prizes. Local artists, Virginia Parrott will also be on hand painting wine portraits inspired by the evening. This entire experience will be a chance to embrace an amazing night of food, wine and fun in the beautiful mountains of Highlands, North Carolina.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there will be an array of activities to choose from. Whether you are up for a farm to table wine dinner, singing and suds or a cooking demonstration, there’s something to inspire everyone! In addition to all the wonderful offerings, plan to attend the annual Sip & Stroll, Saturday, November 12th from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. in our beautiful downtown area.
