"Carbondale is 20 miles south of the capitol of the confederacy and it just has an amazing history during that time period. We are the stories we tell and we've got a good one. So it should not only promote Carbondale but it should promote the whole area," said Ed Van Awken, committee member. 

“Carbondale prides itself on providing its visitors, students, businesses and residents with a unique mix of edge and ease. It’s a cultural town, yet free of pretense, embracing the great outdoors as readily as urban sophistication," said Grant. "Here, we are open to new ideas, experiences and cultures, so you are encouraged to both express yourself and be yourself, in all ways. That’s Carbondale - always open - for family, fun, business, new ideas and a bright tomorrow.”
