Main Street Elizabethton is excited to host the annual Elizabethton Christmas Parade in Downtown Elizabethton on Saturday, December 11, at 6 PM.

The theme of this year’s parade is “Christmas on the Big Screen”. Main Street will honor The Friends of the Bonnie Kate Theater as the Grand Marshal. Main Street Director, Courtney Bean, states “Everyone loves a good Christmas movie! They bring out that warm, nostalgic feeling of the holidays we associate with family and traditions. We are especially excited to honor the Historic Bonnie Kate Theater to celebrate their renovation efforts and the growth of our downtown as a whole.”

Participants are encouraged to decorate floats to highlight scenes from their favorite Christmas movies; “Christmas on the Big Screen” can highlight classics or new favorites. 

Entry applications are available on the Downtown Elizabethton Facebook page here: or you may contact Main Street at (423) 213-0090. The deadline to apply is November 28.

All are encouraged to come out to enjoy an evening filled with lights, laughter, and joy as Main Street Elizabethton celebrates the Christmas season. Main Street will provide additional updates as needed, which can be found on their Facebook page listed above and local media outlets. 

Main Street Elizabethton’s mission is to look towards the future with the goal to preserve culture and heritage, while striving to revitalize the hub and heart of downtown.
