In addition to offering families fun and unique opportunities to spend time together, we also view special events as economic drivers for our local economy. In 2017, over 11,000 guests enjoyed events in Holly Springs; that's over 11,000 potential new clients and customers, 11,000 potential new patients, 11,000 potential new business contacts. We are looking forward to the completion of the Town Center Project, when all special events can take place in the heart of our downtown, attracting thousands of guests each year to what we are sure will be a healthy mix of retail and personal service options.
Easter Egg Hunt - Planned each year the Saturday before Easter, the Easter Bunny makes a stop at Barrett Park to hide over 13,000 Easter Eggs and even stays to take pictures with all the kids! Each family will go home with one printed picture. In addition to Easter Egg Hunting, kids can enjoy the petting zoo, get their face painted, make Easter Egg-shaped spin art, and snack on popcorn! Each child will also leave with a special age-appropriate prize for their egg hunting efforts!
Great American Cleanup - City staff and local volunteers team each the first Saturday in May each year to participate in the country's largest community beautification program that kicks off each spring and engages more than 4 million volunteers in more than 20,000 communities nation-wide. This is a great opportunity for scouts and civic groups looking to engage in and serve their community.
Job Fair - Each year, the City is pleased to host an annual job fair right in the heart of Holly Springs, in the Historic Train Depot, on the first Wednesday of May each year. Come with plenty of resumes ready to meet your next employer and network with fellow job-seekers.
Memorial Day 5K & Fun Run - Held the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend each year, net proceeds from each race are donated to a local non-profit organization. Over the last two years, the City has donated over $6,000 to the students of Holly Springs Elementary School STEM Academy. In 2018, net proceeds will be donated to the LR Tippens Education Center.
Autumn Fest - The City's signature event, Autumn Fest is held the first Saturday in October at Barrett Park. Stay all day and enjoy local arts and crafts from over 80 unique vendors, food trucks, local singers, bands and dance companies, and a free kids zone complete with a rock climbing wall, double bungee trampoline, carnival games, face painting and so much more!
Community Christmas Tree Lighting & Christmas Parade - On the first Friday of December, join your elected officials, City staff, and your neighbors as we light the community Christmas Tree next to Hardin Pavilion at the Historic Train Depot. We'll kick off the Christmas season together with Christmas carols and sweet treats! The day after, come back to downtown Holly Springs for the Christmas Parade! Floats, marching bands, dance groups, and more will march down Holly Springs Parkway towards the Historic Train Depot, where after the end of the parade, Santa himself will be available for pictures.
