Highland Maple Festival

Monterey, Virginia

The annual Highland Maple Festival has been held in Highland County, Virginia since 1958 to promote and celebrate the region's production of sugar maple products. The main activities of the festival, part street fair and part crafts show, are hosted in the town of Monterey on the second and third weekend of March each year. If you are in the area, it is not too late to plan to attend this coming weekend. Highland County is often referred to as "Virginia's Switzerland" and the drive through the Allegheny Mountains alone makes the trip worthwhile.
