Celebrate the beauty of fall in the cozy mountains of Western Virginia at Highland County’s annual Hands & Harvest Festival. Held on the second full weekend in October, this event offers three days of activities, entertainment, farm tours, and fall fun. Come and observe the mountain forests of the Virginia’s Western Highlands transformed into a rich palette of russet, gold, and scarlet. Explore local farms, purchase handmade items from crafters and artists, enjoy free live entertainment, browse local shops, and explore some our local Maple Sugar camps in the “off-season”!
Seasonal foods, including apple butter, apple cider, Allegheny Mountain Trout, and special fall-themed items at local restaurants, will be available throughout the county.
