Main x 24
Mainx24 is a 24-hour long festival celebrating Main Street and the surrounding Southside, held every December since 2007. The project has been a way to celebrate and showcase the burgeoning Southside, where CreateHere’s operations are based. It’s also been an experiment in graduating initiatives into the community: year one, Mainx24 was a CreateHere project. Today, it’s owned, beloved and organized completely by our neighbors and friends.
Behind Mainx24 is an audacious dream: make Chattanooga a 24-hour city. The annual event features programming all day long, from parades to music to poetry readings to chilli cook-offs. In the past, we’ve partnered with the Chattanooga Times Free Press to host a photography competition, and local schools participate in planning and implementation.
