Upcoming Collaborative Events

23 Feb 2022

Main Street Elizabethton, The Elizabethton/Carter County Public Library, and Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department are partnering together to celebrate upcoming milestones and offer a variety of family fun for the upcoming weekends.

Friday, February 25, will mark the 140th “birthday” for the historic Covered Bridge, and to celebrate the occasion, we are hosting a birthday party at Covered Bridge Park from 4-6 PM! Participants can expect to see Covered Bridge Park decorated for the celebration with balloons and streamers in true birthday fashion. A free magic show, bouncy houses (weather pending), and treats from a variety of downtown businesses and partners will be offered throughout the event to mark the milestone. This event is free and open to the public.

On Saturday, March 5, from 11 AM-3 PM, we will once again host the popular Seuss on the Loose event throughout downtown Elizabethton. This event celebrates the works of Dr. Seuss in commemoration of his birthday by encouraging participants to pick up a Sneetch Sheet from the Elizabethton Library to begin the fun and visit each participating business as they encounter guest book readers, characters, crafts, decorations, and themed treats. Once each stop is visited on the Sneetch Sheet, turn it back into the library for an opportunity to win prizes.
