New2Knox Small Group

It’s time for all-new New2Knox Small Groups!

Making friends as an adult can be hard – especially when moving to a new city. Thankfully, Small Groups are an absolutely delightful way to make new friends while exploring our favorite parts of Knoxville.

And by “favorite parts of Knoxville,” we mean beer ?

This round of Small Groups will be brew hopping around the scruffy city on Wednesday nights. You can expect to get an inside scoop (or more accurately, an inside “sip”) on local favorites like:

Crafty Bastard, Alliance, Knox Brew Hub, Five Thirty Lounge, Xul, Geezers, Craft Axe Throwing, South Coast Pizza, and Pour Taproom.

Your Small Group fee will cover drinks at each location, bonus activities, food/snacks, and (most importantly), a curated, intentional space to build relationships and explore Knoxville with a personal (and super friendly!) guide.

Apply for Small Groups here! 

Heads Up: Space is extremely limited so applications that aren’t able to be accepted this time will be put on a waiting list. We promise you will be the absolute first notified about the next round of N2K Small Groups!

We can’t wait to meet you and discover Knoxville together!

6 Ways to Spend Rainy Days in Knoxville

Knoxville, Tennessee is an outdoor-lovers playground. There are endless options. We’re talking mountain biking and paddle boarding and quarry swimming and patio eating.

Things to Do in Knoxville When Family Comes to Town

You are very cool and fun. We can just tell. When someone (such as yourself) is very cool and fun, people will inevitably want to visit Knoxville to hang with you. When people inevitably visit, they will probably want to do more than watch Netflix and eat food (I mean, maybe not much more… but […]

5 Must-Try Vegan Meals in Knoxville

When you think of the South, vegan food isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. No, it’s more like biscuits and BBQ or bust. Needless to say, when moving to Knoxville from a very vegan-centric city, I was super nervous about the vegan and plant-based scene. But let me you, Knoxville has got […]
