Downtown Statesville has everything to make Valentine’s Day special this year including carriage rides! The Valentine’s Carriage Rides will be offered on Saturday, February 13, 2021 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm. 


Downtown Statesville Development Corporation will provide two vis-à-vis carriages (a total of 18 reservation slots) for the evening of the February 13. Each carriage ride time slot will be sold online in advance starting Monday, February 8, 2021. Your reservation will secure the whole carriage for you and your true love, or your friends and family. Maximum number of people per carriage ride is 4 adults and 4 lap size children.

Carriages will be sanitized between each group. We ask that you only purchase one carriage reservation to allow an opportunity for others interested.

Remember, it is not just a day for couples -- it is a day to celebrate friends and family, too! Whether you take your true love or your BFF, we will encourage people to get out, have some fun on Valentine’s Day weekend, and spread the Love Local!

Carriage Pick Up & Drop Off Location: 

In front of 123 East Broad Street (First ARP Church) 


Rides will leave every 20 minutes to allow for carriage loading & unloading as well as sanitizing for COVID-19 safety.

Whether reserving a carriage before or after your Valentine’s dinner, be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to be at 123 East Broad Street (in front of First ARP church) 5 minutes before your ride! If you arrive more than 5 minutes late for your reserved time slot, we will consider your reservation forfeited. If any of your group is late, the ride will proceed with those in attendance. No refund will be available.

Also, the carriage has a canopy in case of rain, but if the weather looks severe, call 704-878-3436 for a recorded message 3 pm on Saturday, February 13. If for some reason the carriage company would cancel due to snow or ice, we would reschedule for Saturday, February 27.
