Join us this holiday season and celebrate an old fashioned Christmas in Highland County!

It’s like a scene right out of your favorite Hallmark movie – a small town celebrating Christmas, Santa Claus, Christmas lights, good will, and a community coming together to celebrate the season. Enjoy the holiday evening with friends and family – old and new. Even if you’re a visitor to our community, we’ll make you feel right at home in no time!

Browse in our area’s nostalgic setting, experience Christmas in a small country town, shop through our local stores and vendors, sip on hot chocolate, and even visit Santa!

Slow your pace and enjoy Christmas in Highland County! Check out our schedule of events below. We’re always adding new things, so be sure to check in frequently!
