Hooray for Harriman

hooray for harrimanEveryone looks forward to Labor Day, but here in Roane County, we have an extra special reason to celebrate – Hooray for Harriman! This free family event takes place on Roane Street in Downtown Harriman each year. This year, we are celebrating Harriman’s 125th anniversary, and the festivities will be in full swing from 9am-4pm.

Fans of arts and crafts rejoice! At Hooray for Harriman, you’ll have the opportunity to talk with local crafters and purchase their wares. Interested in becoming a vendor? Click here for more information.

If you’re like us, you come to festivals for the food and music. Hooray for Harriman has the best of both! Barbecue, hot dogs, delicious desserts and ice cold drinks will be available all day long. Great local bands and gospel groups will perform throughout the day. Full bellies and tapping toes are a signature of this annual beloved event.

Lots of Children’s activities will be available for kids of all ages. This is definitely an event for the whole family. Grab your grandparents, parents, neighbors, friends, kids, grandkids, and anyone else you can think of! There’s something for everyone at Hooray for Harriman!

Cap Off the Summer at Harriman Cruisin’

Join us for Harriman's Cruisin'School is back in session, and it won’t be long before Labor Day is here. Help us give summer the send-off it deserves this Saturday, August 13  at one last Cruisin’ in downtown Harriman.  Cruisin’ is one of the few events where part of Roane Street is closed for an evening of family-friendly fun. Classic cars, hot rods and motorcycles line the street creating quite the nostalgic scene. Bands will be playing as friends gather together to celebrate what makes our county special. Admission to Cruisin’ Harriman is free, but food vendors will be on site with a variety of mouthwatering menus.

While the car show is quite impressive, the true crowd favorite has to be the abundance of games! There are lots of opportunities for the kids to play, but we encourage the young at heart to participate as well. Be careful – we’ve heard the corn hole tournament can be highly competitive!

Got a good looking car, truck or motorcycle you’d like to show off? Registration begins at the Princess Theatre.
