Once Upon a Highlands Day
2017 Highlands Day Festival
Once upon a time, in a village on a hillside in the land of Issaquah, the people declared,
“Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The 26th day of the month of August, in the year of two-thousand-seventeen, has been pronounced Highlands Day!”
Royalty, knights, jesters and the like marked their calendars in anticipation of this day to celebrate the fairy-tale life that is living in Issaquah Highlands!
On festival day, all the storybook characters from everyone’s favorite classic tales will come to life as we enjoy live entertainment, hearty fare, and medieval fun.
Location: Blakely Hall and Village Green Park, 2550 NE Park Drive, Issaquah WA 98029
Getting to the Festival
Don’t worry about where to park your car or noble steed. Get to the venue on the Shelter Holdings or 425 Magazine Trolleys with stops at Grand Ridge Plaza, West Highlands Park, Discovery Heights at the Brownstones, 15th & Park Drive and Grand Ridge Elementary.
Attention Issaquah Highlands residents: Please move your car from Park Drive (between 25th Ave NE and 30th Ave NE) by noon or an evil witch or wizard tow-truck will move it for you.
What to Wear
Come dressed as your favorite fairy tale or literary character as we celebrate our diverse, magical kingdom!
What to Bring
Don’t forget to bring money for activity tickets, food and shopping!
Rides & Games
Be brave and choose your quest wisely. There’s plenty of climbing, jumping, spinning and racing on the many adventure-packed festival attractions.
Returning this Year: Pony Rides!
Don’t miss the mystical music and theatrics live from the stage. And be on the lookout for a cast of fanciful characters roaming throughout our festival kingdom.
