4th of July Collaboration

July 6, 2019, ELKINS — The 4th of July Celebration in Downtown Elkins was a collaborative effort between the Elkins-Randolph County Chamber, Elkins Main Street, Our Town (Mountain State Street Machines), Elkins-Randolph Tourism, the City of Elkins, and the Randolph County Commission.

The celebration began Friday evening with First Friday sponsored by Elkins Main Street and the 2019 MSSM Car Extravaganza. The car show continued Saturday. That evening, between multiple rain showers and lightening bursts, the Chamber hosted a concert featuring Santa Cruz Band. The concert ended early due to rain, but the fireworks went off anyway. Sponsors for the fireworks and concert were the Randolph County Commission, the City of Elkins, Davis & Elkins College, Anytime Fitness, and National Management Resources Corporation.

The car show wrapped up the weekend on Sunday morning. The Chamber and all the collaborators and sponsors thank the community for participating in the 2019 4th of July Celebration!
