Experience Our Events

OFFICIAL UPDATE

Due to current guidelines issued by the State of North Carolina, Department of Health and Human Services and Governor Roy Cooper regarding social distancing and to do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19, all City of Kings Mountain Special Events scheduled to take place in April have been cancelled.  These events include the Flashlight & Glow-In-The-Dark Easter Egg Hunt and Earth Day.  The April 4th concert featuring Ultimate Eagles Tribute-On the Border, will be rescheduled for a later date.  The safety and health of our employees and the public is our highest priority, and we thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.  We will continue to post updates as they become available.
