Settled in the late 1760’s, Carter County’s historic notability is among the most fascinating in the state. The City of Elizabethton is home to both the oldest building in the state of Tennessee, the Carter Mansion, and one of the first written constitutional governments west of the Appalachian Mountains, located at Sycamore Shoals State Park.

Covered Bridge Days returns September 23 – 25 with a fantastic musical lineup, featuring The Grascals, Ricky Scaggs & the Kentucky Thunder, and The Isaacs! Join us downtown for this FREE community festival to enjoy children’s activities, vendors, food trucks, and live music. Hosted by the City of Elizabethton Parks & Recreation Department.

Join Main Street Elizabethton for a Block Party during Covered Bridge Days on Saturday, 9/24 (sponsored by Elizabethton Federal Savings Bank). The Block Party will feature a beer garden on the 3rd block of Elk Avenue and live music from Monday Night Social and Florencia & the Feeling. Stay tuned for more information!
