Highland Maple Festival – Monterey, VA
Saturday – March 17

maple-picTake a step back in time when you visit Highland County . . . “Virginia’s Sweet Spot.” Travel the mountain byways to Monterey, Virginia, home to the annual Highland Maple Festival. This annual event, held since 1958, draws visitors to the unspoiled, rural region of Virginia to celebrate the “opening” of the trees and to observe the process of maple syrup making. Designated a “Local Legacy” by the Library of Congress in 1999, the tasty Highland tradition is sure to be the sweetest of festivals!  We’ve included lunch in Monterey, free time to visit all the art and crafts on Main Street, as well as time at the local high school for more arts and crafts and clogging entertainment. Visit the Old Country Store in McDowell, to learn about the modern technology used to tap the trees and last but not least, visit the Virginia Trout Company to see where they are raising thousands of trout (We’ll have an extra cooler on hand for those that want to bring some home!)
