The Bristol Train Station has a very sophisticated charm to it. Functioning as a very busy traveling junction, it is a very popular location for private events today. Be it a wedding or a private banquet, this place is one of the most ideal locations in the city!
This venue, located along the Tennessee border, plays host to a series of events. A large ice-skating rink brings together enthusiastic skaters, both amateur and professional. In November catch the popular 'In Lights' show, where speedway participants follow thousands of lights as they complete laps amidst cheers from onlookers. Kids will love the Animated Snowman, Dinosaur Village and Christmas Village. Other events include Food City 250, Blue Lizard Pole Day, Sharpie MINI 300, the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series and the Craftsman Truck Series. Catch the action live in the facility along with the other 25,000 spectators as the racers push their cars to touch unexpected limits. For a day full of thrills, this is your best bet.
The Carter Family Fold is meant to commemorate the famous Cater family, whose first recordings in 1927 sparked the commercial country music industry. Now, you can come in every Saturday night to see a performance of old-time country and folk music. This place is a true piece of Virginia history.
