Founders Day Parade & Festival

Saturday, May 18, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Celebrate the vibrant history and tight-knit community of Historic Downtown Highland at our annual Founders Day Festival and Parade! Proudly presented by the Highland Downtown Development Authority and generously supported by our Presenting Sponsor, Feldman Chevrolet.

The festivities kick off with a jubilant parade at 10 AM, featuring spirited youth baseball teams and local organizations parading down Livingston Road from the Highland Nazarene Church to John Street, painting the town with excitement and cheer.

After the parade, the festival springs to life with a kaleidoscope of activities for all ages! Kids will revel in our enchanting Kids Zone, where bounce houses, pony rides, and a petting zoo await, alongside the chance to win a brand-new bike. Discover treasures and treats from local artisans and indulge in delectable delights from food trucks. Plus, be moved by the stirring Veteran’s ceremony, take a ride on the mini-train, and let your imagination soar with whimsical face painting brought to you by the Highland Activity Center. Join us for a day of community spirit, fun, and laughter as we honor Downtown Highland’s Founder’s Day in style.


Thank you to our Sponsors:
