Thanks to a mild climate, Lawrence County hosts outdoor events most of the year. The fun begins in April with the Springtime Merry Market at Rotary Park. That’s followed by celebrations every month: monster trucks, bluegrass and Gospel music, the Middle Tennessee District Fair, and tractor pulls, rodeos and antique car shows. Each year concludes with a big finish at our Oktoberfest and Annual Christmas Parade.
