Huntingdon is a town with a future. We’re always thinking forward and it shows in the things we do, from concerts and theatrical events as well as art and cultural exhibits and educational opportunities at The Dixie, to the new Carroll County 1000 Acre Recreational Lake, to our wonderful schools, businesses and industries.
Huntingdon — the seat of Carroll County — is a town that celebrates our rich history. At our annual Heritage Festival, we combine a whole lot of fun, food and music with an award that highlights our history, the Pioneer Family Award, while also recognizing current accomplishments with the Outstanding Citizen Award. Don’t miss it!
Huntingdon is a town that recognizes the accomplishments of our citizens on an ongoing basis with the Pinnacle of Excellence award. We’re proud of the people who call Huntingdon home!
We invite you to take a look through our web site and to pay us a visit. Whether you live locally or just passing through, you’ll find a drive through Huntingdon to be an appealing experience thanks to our scenic parks and efforts at keeping our downtown region both vibrant and beautiful.
You’re going to love our parks. We’re not even sure where to begin, because our small and tidy parks, like Maddox Memorial Park coming in on Hwy 22 from McKenzie and the welcome center on West Main Street, are just as important to us as our sports facilities, like Edwards Park and Kelley Sports Complex, or historic Thomas Park, Sesquicentennial Park and Veterans Park.
Kelley Sports Complex is home to many local soccer, baseball and softball events and is also available for rent for tournaments. It has a professional appeal with its modern design, featuring a centrally located, multi-sided concession building with restrooms, and upstairs press facilities. It’s located adjacent to the Sesquicentennial Park and playground area.
Whether you’re planning a picnic or a family reunion, you’ll find the perfect spot among the many to choose from in our park system.
We’ve got attractions! Lovely scenery and Southern hospitality are just the beginning of why you’ll love to call Huntingdon home or “home away from home”. Many people are already aware of how Huntingdon became a household name after bringing The Dixie to West Tennessee. No longer do you have to travel to Memphis or Nashville for first-class concerts or theatrical events. And children as well as adults are afforded wonderful opportunities annually through The Dixie’s educational, arts, choral and theatrical offerings.
Now, we are also home to the NEW Carroll County 1000 Acre Recreational Lake. The lake boasts TWO beaches, recreational barge, a concession stand, fishing and water sports. Don’t miss it!
Seasonally, we look forward to seeing you at our Memorial Day service, when we remember the fallen soldiers from our county and honor the veterans who remain. In the fall, mark your calendar each year to enjoy arts and crafts, live music, story-telling, petting zoo and inflatable play area and much more at the Huntingdon Heritage Festival, when we also honor some very special folks in our community.
But that’s not all! Come to Huntingdon’s flea market each Tuesday, make us part of your Civil War Trails discovery tour, and visit our local airport located between Huntingdon and McKenzie for flight lessons and more, and visit our library and local shopping centers.
Beauty, charm, and unsurpassed recreation and artistic opportunity awaits every comer to Huntingdon. Already rich with the offerings of the Dixie PAC, the new 1000 acre lake adds a whole new dimension to the Town and surrounding regions. Come for a theatrical performance and then stay to shop or play at the lake. You may find Huntingdon to be the place you always wanted to call “home”.
