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.

Join us for a special evening in Downtown Elizabethton to enjoy extended holiday shopping hours, delicious beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic offered), & the magic of Christmas on Friday, 12/1 from 5 PM – 9 PM!

Register to participate in the Elizabethton Christmas Parade “Season of Lights”.

Main Street will honor The City of Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department as the Grand Marshal!

The deadline to apply is December 2.
