“Let the Highlands be glad, let the guests at The Park on Main rejoice; let the hungry people attending the 9th Annual Culinary Weekend roar.”

OK, so we took some linguistic liberties with King David’s 96th Psalm.  But our salient point – beyond the hierographological play on words – is that on Nov. 5 the Annual Culinary Weekend begins. And that’s cause for some major festive celebrations.

For hungry tummies, this 4-day occasion is the place to be. Looking to fine dine? Looking for some culinary masterpieces? Looking to experience the best food this side of the Rockies? Come to The Park on Main, the luxury hotel in small-town Highlands, North Carolina – tucked beautifully atop a plateau of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

This weekend will be all about eating, drinking and be merry amid the vast western spread of North Carolina. You may behold the magnificent mountain views, the rolling splendor of distant, rugged landscape. You can examine the mystery of the soft thunder of so many waterfalls; you can set out on a stroll through downtown to explore the shops, the stores and the best art galleries on this spot of planet Earth.

This weekend, as you arrive in Highlands, North Carolina, you begin your journey – a culinary experience. After you checking into your room at The Park on Main, you take note to go to the ever-popular Sip and Stroll. This year’s stroll is Friday, Nov. 6 and Saturday, Nov. 7. The time: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Those who wish to experience the stroll are instructed to meet at the Highlands Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center at 108 Main Street.

Tickets for this event are $45. Guests will receive a Culinary Weekend wine bag, wine glass, map and wristband. Participating merchants will have you in mind; each of them will be offering a fantastic selection of food and wine for sampling. Wines served during the stroll will also be available at Mountain Fresh Grocery.
