Highlands NC - Village Square Art & Craft Show Comments

Village Square Arts & Crafts Show

Village Square Art & Craft Show in the cool mountain town of Highlands, NC.
June 14 & 15 and August 23 & 24

Everyone loves an art and craft show, and is it any wonder? They are places where color and creativity meet up with talent, skill and originality. Throw in some good food and mountain music, and you have the makings of a memorable experience.

You will find it all at the Village Square Art & Craft Show in the cool mountain town of Highlands, NC. The show schedule for 2014 includes the weekends of June 14/15 and August 23/24.

Sponsored by the Macon County Art Association, there are many fine art originals and prints to choose from. You will also find jewelry, pottery, weaving, metalwork, woodwork and other high quality crafts for the home and garden. The show features only local and regional artisans.

This will be our 9th year, and the shows continue to grow. See work by master blacksmith Wesley Angel who fashions wrought iron gates and home/garden accessories. Highlands own Patrick Taylor always wows people with his pottery and animal facejugs. Skip Staab makes both pottery and twig furniture. Lee Byers of Highlands creates beautiful jewelry out of leather and pearls. With 70 vendors in the shows, you will be sure to find something special.

The show is held in downtown Highlands at Kelsey-Hutchinson Park and neighboring Village Square, a block from Main Street. If you have trouble finding it, complain to the town, because they won't let us put out signs in town! But if you can find the Catholic Church or Macon Bank, you'll find the show. Please note that these shows are no longer on the holiday weekends due to a decision by our town board in June 2012.

A complete menu of food and drinks are available at Fresser's Eatery in the Village Square, and in the park Howard Lockamy will dish up hand-squeezed lemonade and the best boiled peanuts you ever ate (and my fave, Cajun boiled peanuts), as well as iced tea and fruit cobbler with ice cream.

For more information call show coordinator Cynthia Strain at Mill Creek Gallery & Framing (828) 787-2021, Check out our facebook page (Village Square Shows) too. And be sure to visit MCAA's wonderful Uptown Gallery in downtown Franklin when you can.

Food Music Face Painting Family Fun!
