In 2021, Bear Shadow Music Festival in Highlands was the first multi-day music festival in the United States following the COVID-19 shutdown. Located on a 50-acre farm near Highlands, North Carolina, the event features a lineup of musicians from across the country, as well as eclectic food and cocktails. More information:

3-day lineup of musical acts for nearly every musical taste, from bluegrass and blues to folk and soul, including performances by Band of Horses, Lukas Nelson, Jamestown Revival, Trampled by Horses and more.

Bear Shadow welcomes beloved bands from across the country to Highlands, NC for a long weekend of music and fun in the mountains. “When we had to find a new venue last year because our original location in Highlands didn’t allow for the proper social distancing, we were so afraid we would have to cancel.” says Casey Reid of Eleven Events.

Reid continues, “We were delighted to connect with the owners of Scaly Farm who generously allowed us to host the Bear Shadow Music Festival on their property. It was a nice backdrop to have the beautiful mountains in the background. It was such a hit that we have it again on the same 50 acre farm in 2022.”
