The Peanut Butter and Jam Festivals kick off May 27 and continue every Friday until near the start of school, with two exceptions when other festivals are occurring.
The PB&J festivals, co-hosted by the Highland Chamber of Commerce and city of Highland, run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the downtown Square. There is free entertainment, popcorn, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Or, you can purchase one of your favorites from the various vendors. It’s a great way to spend your lunch hour.
The Peanut Butter and Jam Festival will take a one-week break June 10 when the summer festival season kicks into high gear with Highland’s annual homecoming, the Schweizerfest. The festival also takes a break on July 29 for the Madison County Fair.
This year’s entertainment lineup is:
