2023 Colorful Lights Walking Tour
What it is
From 7-10pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in September 2023, the historic homes of Concord will be lit up in a magical display. This free tour encourages everyone to get out, connect with others, and learn about the historic homes in Downtown Concord.
By celebrating our history, we pay homage to the individuals that built our town, and we also learn from its trials and tribulations. We bring to light the importance of historical preservation and share the stories of the past of the structures that still stand today. This event also connects us with our community in an organic way to continue to provide a solid foundation for our growing city.
Colorful Lights Historic Concord Walking Tour
Concord’s most colorful of all its community events
Downtown Concord has a rich history as the birthplace of the original gold rush and a booming hub for the textile industry of the south. The area is littered with historic mills that once buzzed with fabric production. Downtown itself preserves buildings that were built in the late 19th century and early 20th century and is the center of Concord’s origins.
Downtown Concord is home to three centuries of homes located in the historic district of North and South Union Streets. These homes have dazzling histories and are being preserved by dedicated homeowners that share a passion for historic homes.
Started in 2021 by Residents of Historic Concord and TuxedoKat with only 60 houses on North and South Union, the Colorful Lights Walking Tour continues into its second year in 2023 with 80 colorfully lit houses along eight different streets in Historic Concord!
