Located just a few blocks from Historic Downtown Aiken, Highfields sprawls over 60-acres of grassy fields and is home to equestrian and non-equestrian events. It has hosted musical festivals, dog shows, car shows, hot air balloon rallies and other events that have taken advantage of the wide-open spaces, ample parking and family friendly atmosphere.
