Highland PB&J Festivals start Friday

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.
