The Festival of the Bells Committee, the City of Hillsboro and the Highland County Health Department have determined the need to cancel the 2021 Festival of the Bells.

Currently, it is too difficult to provide a safe event for the community, guests, artists and vendors. The potential for a large crowd in a confined area is a health concern. This decision was made with heavy hearts, but with the best intentions in mind for all involved. Efforts will focus on a strong comeback for the 2022 Festival of the Bells.
