Highlands Fest 2016: Spreading Wings

Highlands Fest Poster (3)Saturday, June 25 10AM to 1PM. Free.

Join us for this year’s Highlands Fest! The theme, “Spreading Wings,” is inspired by Highlands Center’s location on the sea cliffs of the North Atlantic Flyway. Millions of birds rely on this majestic slice of the Outer Cape to breed, feed, and thrive, migrating over the salt marshes and windblown dunes and plains. “Spreading Wings” also captures the symbolism of the Highlands Center partner’s opportunity to take flight and flourish, and mutual interest to inspire and educate people of all ages, abilities, and ethnicities about the important role of birds in our ecosystem. These themes will be expressed through ceramic sculpture, storytelling, mural painting, dance, music, and education.

Highlands Fest is an annual celebration of the Highlands Center at Cape Cod National Seashore by its partner organizations: Barnstable County AmeriCorps Cape Cod, Cape Cod National Seashore, Payomet Performing Arts Center, Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, Sustainable CAPE, and Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill.
