Bear Shadow is an annual spring time music festival and celebration in The Highlands Plateau, North Carolina. As a sister festival of the enviable Highlands Food & Wine produced by Highlands Festivals, Inc., Bear Shadow brings highly anticipated, world-class music acts and day time experiences to the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau. This weekend of music in the mountains celebrates the best of the new season as we all emerge from hibernation with hope and anticipation for the future.
Bear Shadow proudly commits to the environmental conservation and preservation of The Highlands Plateau. In 2021 and 2022, Bear Shadow donated $50,000 to local organizations, including the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust and Highlands Biological Station. In 2023 we are partnering with Sky Valley-Scaly Mountain Volunteer Fire & Rescue and The Resource Institute to help keep our beautiful land and waterways safe for people and wildlife alike. $25 of every ticket purchase will go to support these organizations. Bear Shadow is a production of Highlands Festivals, Inc., a 501c3 organization.
