Virtual Experiences/#Connect Chatt
While people in Chattanooga and across the world are practicing social distancing recommended by health professionals due to COVID-19, ConnectChatt is a way to bring us all together at home and connect you to Chattanooga. We have created #ConnectChatt to share our community’s virtual experiences through social media and our website. Follow @VisitChatt on Facebook for live and digital experiences. See what experiences are available for you and your family to tune into or do at home, and check back often for new additions.
