The Highland County Maple Festival Celebrates 60 Years
Every March, thousands of people make the twist and turn ride through the Alleghany Mountains for the Highland County Maple Festival. And this year will be no exception.
However, it will be a little sweeter as the festival marks its 60th anniversary.
So what makes Highland County so special? For starters, it’s one of the last unspoiled rural regions in Virginia.
As soon as you arrive, you’ll feel like you’ve taken a step back in time. With mountain byways and back roads, “Virginia’s Sweet Spot” was designated a Local Legacy by the Library of Congress in 1999. Guests of the Inn at Old Virginia always rave about the quality and the fun they have at this treasured festival.
