A lot happens here in Carlisle during the year. We start out with the Annual Dinner at which time we recognize a person as Citizen of the Year and a person as Friend of Education. These individuals are chosen by the residents as outstanding citizens who have volunteered their time/talents for the betterment of the community. This year is the first time we have also designated a Business of the Year which is the Carlisle Community School District. This business was chosen not only because it is the largest employer in the community, but also because the school is very community minded.

There are other events throughout the year such as:


Mower racing with River Bottom Racing, for schedule click here.


The Community Family Bike Ride/Breakfast.

The 4th of July Celebration which boosts one of the largest parades and fireworks display in this area.

There is a Pumpkin-fest in October, and the year ends with the annual Light Up Carlisle celebration.


To see this year's 2015 upcoming events click here.


We can't forget the Historical Randleman House where Open House & special events are held throughout the year.
