The Highlands Craft Show was established by a group of dedicated volunteers in 1982 and over the past three decades, this wonderful event raised over $1,000,000 to support The Highlands Mansion & Gardens, and has fulfilled its mission to supply funding needed for the initial restoration and maintenance of The Sinkler Garden at The Highlands. In recent years the challenges of mounting this traditional craft show have increased substantially, and The Highlands Board of Trustees and The Highlands Craft Show Committee have decided to look for other fundraising opportunities.
The Highlands Historical Society (HHS) would like to thank the wonderful volunteers, exhibitors, patrons and benefactors who have so generously supported The Highlands Craft Show for the past thirty-three years. We invite you to stay in touch with HHS. Please visit The Highlands to enjoy the Sinkler Garden’s continuing restoration, and to support the Society’s ongoing initiatives, projects and programs at The Highlands.
However, after years of not holding this event, we are thrilled to introduce a return of crafts to the mansion in an intimate new way. We are currently working on The Highlands Craft Boutique to take place here this fall. Guests will be welcomed into the mansion for a boutique style shopping experience where you can meet the artisans, enjoy catered refreshments and purchase unique wares just in time for the holidays. More details will be posted soon on our events page.
