Highland, Indiana Things to Do
Highland boasts 198 acres of parkland across the community, providing plenty of outdoor activities. Main Square plays host to events all year round beginning in January with New Year’s Eve Fireworks and the annual 12th Night Tree Burning. When the weather warms up Highland packs the park with food, crafts and beer gardens! The Midweek Music & Market, Summer Theatre, Fourth of July Festival and Last Call for Summer Festival in August are events visitors will not want to miss at Main Square Park.
Don’t miss the annual Car Cruise in June or the Festival of the Trail in October! Highland is also home to the Erie-Lackawanna Trail. Whether you like to bike, jog, walk or people-watch, you’ll enjoy the 70-plus acre landscaped trail that is part of Highland’s park system. Stay tuned for more information about the construction at Sheppard Park for a new, state-of-the-art skateboard park.
Highland Parks and Recreation offers the Lincoln Community Center where people of all ages can enjoy a wide range of fitness programs, adult and youth sports classes and leagues, as well as lifestyle and arts & cultural programs. Join us when the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra brings their amazing musicians to Monbeck Auditorium at Highland High School. You’ll agree these performances are not to be missed!
