Mainx24 is a 24-hour long festival celebrating Main Street and the surrounding Southside, held the first Saturday in December since 2007. The project has been a way to celebrate and showcase the burgeoning Southside. Mainx24 is organized completely by residents, merchants, and friends of the Southside community.
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.
