The Kingsport Carousel Project is a joint effort by The City of Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts & Engage Kingsport, the “Friends of the Cultural Arts” group, a private 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation governed by a volunteer board of directors and supported by the generosity of people who love the arts.  

The arts are transformative to places as well as individuals.

The goal of the Kingsport Carousel Project is to build and operate a menagerie-style carousel featuring all hand-carved wooden animals and chariots on a refurbished machine that is totally unique and iconic to Kingsport.

The machine (frame) is a 1956 3-row Herschell designed for 32 animals and 2 chariots.  The frame was a gift to the Kingsport Carousel Project by the Beardsley Zoo of Bridgeport, CT. 

The carousel animals include traditional horses as well as wild animals, a dragon and a unicorn.  The carousel will be housed in an enclosed structure for year-round operation, with a gift shop and a demonstration carving studio.

It will be located in the vicinity of the Kingsport Farmers Market.
