My company had our first company Family Day event (in November!) and it was a smashing success! With approximately six weeks to plan, Jeff and Bob were wonderful to work with, making great suggestions and delivering on every request. We have already booked our event for 2023, but this time in June!

We Throw Parties for a Living

We love what we do! While outdoor corporate barbecues are still the centerpiece of High Point’s catering services, we have grown to include many more event types.

Services Quick Look

Put our deep event planning experience to work for you!

Our event planners have years of experience in the design and execution of special events, including corporate outings, trade-shows, luncheons, galas, weddings, holiday parties, and more. We will be happy to assist you with all aspects of event planning, including venue selection, menu options, original theme ideas, entertainment and rental options.

Here’s a look at our services.

BARBECUE 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. We have stunning Venues from which to choose to fit any size group and type of event.

THE FORMAL DIVISION handles all kinds of formal events at venues around the greater Washington, D.C., area, from Baltimore to Alexandria to Clarksburg. Catering and event planning services at High Point include a variety of food and service options by our well-trained and professional wait staff. Casual outdoor Weddings are a specialty, and our beautiful venues give you plenty of options for the perfect setting.

RENTALS & ENTERTAINMENT 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? Should I choose DJ vs. a live band? Best options for china and glassware? Bartending services? A/V equipment?

BAR AND BEVERAGE SERVICES are available at our 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.

DISASTER RELIEF 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.

For the first time since 2019, we were able to include hot food for the annual Run Under the LIghts at Seneca Creek State Park. High Point Events had catered in the past, and brought all their expertise to our event this year. They served more than 700 runners at an outdoor venue, at night, in the cold. We received so many complements on the hot food from our participants! Jeff and Tim and the whole High Point team were great to work with and made everything go smoothly. I can't recommend them highly enough.

My husband and I worked with the High Point team to cater our wedding! Not only did they cater, but they handled our tables and chairs rentals. They took care of setting up tables and table decor. We worked with them item by item on our service quote to prioritize what was most important to us. They even set up a tasting for us to try some of the pieces of our meal a couple weeks before the wedding. The day of our wedding, high point staff made sure John and I got plates of the appetizers and the meal. This was so crucial! At the end of the night, high point gave to go boxes to our guests of the leftover food. Many of my friends appreciated this! We worked closely with Katy. She was such a delight! Food was delicious! Pit beef was my favorite.

Five stars isn't enough to express the outstanding service provided by the High Point team! This is a team of top notch experts that truly go above and beyond for their clients. I hired High Point for a celebratory corporate event for around 150 guests. We held the event in a tent in our parking lot. The event was beautiful both inside and out. The team took care of every logistic and detail including party rentals (tables, chairs, etc.), decorations that included beautiful fresh florals, AV services, etc. They took all the stress and guess work out of the process. The final product was just exceptional. The food was delicious and received many compliments from guests. The menu they recommended was spot on for the event. We also ordered cupcakes with our branded logo that were a huge hit with all who attended. While the food and final product were flawless, there are no words to express how wonderful the service was. Each member of the staff who was present for the event was kind, helpful, and professional. In addition, the event planning team was exceptionally helpful, attentive, and responsive throughout the entire process. Everyone on the team was awesome. I am so grateful to Bob, Jeff, Katy, Matt, Danny, Kara, and the entire High Point team. While these are the names of the folks I interacted with the most, those whose names I didn't catch were just as stellar and deserve the same level of recognition. If you're looking for an event and catering vendor, look no further than High Point - you will be in the best hands! They truly did everything they could to make this event stress-free for us.

We used High Point Catering for our high school reunion held at Bally Cliff Farm, and the staff was excellent, the food was delicious, and they were very professional. The event went off without a hitch! Thanks to High Point.

High Point Events & Catering made our joint 40th Class Reunion an overwhelming success! The entire team was courteous, helpful and incredibly professional throughout the planning process, set up, service and clean up of our event at Bally Cliff Farm. Alumni from RMHS Classes of 1980, 1981 and 1982 had an incredible time celebrating a once-in-a-lifetime joint reunion event. It could not have gone more perfectly; in fact, most agreed we should only hold joint class reunions in the future! Thank you to Bob and the entire team for making it look easy.

Our company recently held an event at Bally Cliff Farm in Poolesville, MD/High Point, and it was amazing. The weather was perfect for Fall. The food was great, the location was THE BEST! The entertainment was great, especially the caricature artist - he was fantastic. I would highly recommend the location and High Point.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Bob and the entire High Point crew. In June, we held a celebration of life dinner and gathering for my father, who passed away in February, and the High Point team was amazing every step of the way. They were kind, professional, reliable, and communicative throughout the whole planning process (not easy, since I was planning this event from out of state!) and made sure everything went perfectly during the event. The event was held at Rolling Ridge Farm and Stables in Laytonsville and the venue was even more beautiful than the pictures I saw. The food was great, everything ran to schedule, and every single member of the team was lovely and warm, going above and beyond. The bartender even spent 20 minutes during speeches when there was a lull at the bar helping to entertain my 18-month-old daughter to keep her occupied. We will absolutely use their services again.
