Highwood Days & North Shore Taco Fest

July 19-22, 2018

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Highwood’s oldest festival. Complete with carnival rides, funnel cakes, live music and tons of food from local vendors – this is the most traditional festival and will not disappoint! To add to the excitement, in 2016 Celebrate Highwood added a beer and margarita garden and the annual North Shore Taco Fest where we will bring together the region’s best taco-centric restaurants, caterers and food trucks to offer a wide range of mouth-watering taco creations.
