Exceptional. Every Time
– That’s what our many satisfied clients in the National Capital area and on our social media sites say. In our more-than-40-year history since our founding in 1971 as Egan Barbecuers, High Point Events has been the “go-to” company for all your entertaining needs. We pride ourselves on being innovative, reliable, professional and accommodating. Still family owned, High Point Events offers a variety of services – at your office, at an off-site venue, or at our own High Point Farm. We pride ourselves on being flexible enough to meet our clients’ special requests whenever possible to ensure that each event is a memory for a lifetime!

Here’s a look at our services.

THE BARBECUE DIVISION is how High Point Events got its start. What sets High Point apart from other caterers is that our food is cooked on site whenever possible. We’ve been known to set up our grills everywhere from office parking lots to local parks to the National Mall. Of course, one of our favorite places is our own High Point Farm, a 150+-acre outdoor site in Clarksburg, Maryland.

THE FORMAL DIVISION handles all kinds of formal events at venues around the greater Washington, D.C., area. From Baltimore to Northern Virginia to Hagerstown, we offer a variety of food and service options by a well-trained and professional wait staff. Weddings, of all degrees of formality and of every size, are a key part of our company services.

THE RENTALS & EVENT SERVICES DIVISION is an outgrowth of our connections with the best suppliers in the area. What size tent do you need? Which would work better: round tables or rectangles? What are the relative benefits of a DJ vs. a live band? What are your best options for china and glassware? Bartending services? A/V equipment? With more than 40 years of experience, we can help you identify details that might otherwise be overlooked.

BAR AND BEVERAGE SERVICES are available at High Point Farm as well as at off-site venues. Our liquor license allows us to offer a variety of services at venues which will allow alcohol. We offer beer and wine services, specialty bars, full-service bars, and other options.

THE DISASTER DIVISION is a specialized aspect of High Point Events. We provide emergency catering and logistics coordination at times of large-scale natural disasters and in other emergency situations. Contact our Disaster Services Coordinator for more information.

THE EXPRESS DIVISION specializes in drop-and-go catering at offices and other venues. If you need to provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, or breaks for a meeting or event, give us a call, 301.428.0650. Be sure you’re subscribed to our EXPRESS electronic newsletter so that you can take advantage of our frequent specials.

Our event planners boast years of experience in the design and execution of special events, including corporate outings, tradeshows, luncheons, galas, weddings, holiday parties, and all manner of events.
