The Highlands Food & Wine Festival, an annual food, wine and music gala in the Town of Highlands, North Carolina, has created a new look and feel for the 2019 festival, starting with a brand refresh and redesigned website in anticipation of its May 30 ticket release. “Early Bird” pre-sale ticket access will begin May 30 at 12 p.m.

Highlands Food & Wine newsletter subscribers will receive exclusive Early Bird access to be eligible to purchase tickets during the pre-sale period. Individual and weekend passes will be available for purchase directly on the website again this year. Tickets go on sale to the public on June 6, based on availability after the pre-sale event.

“We are looking forward to another exciting festival this year and wanted to showcase our Southern roots by updating the look of our brand to reflect the festival atmosphere—a true celebration of the food, drink, music and the Blue Ridge Mountains,” says Casey Reid, Festival Director and partner at Eleven Events, Inc. “It all starts with our new state-of-the-art website. We hope our fans will find it easy to navigate and plan their visits. We added a festival at-a-glance feature to easily see each day’s feature events and talent lineups. We have some exciting plans for this year’s festival and look forward to sharing more details soon about the world-renowned chefs and acclaimed musicians who plan to join us.”
