Highlands Day Festival 2017

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, Highlands Day 2017 Trumpeter

“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
