Art, Culture, (and Snacks), Oh My!

Downtown erupts into a magical land of art, culture, and (free!) wine and snacks on the First Friday of each month! Businesses transform into galleries, while restaurants and bars host a myriad of performances from comedy to music to poetry. Map out your First Friday experience, or simply park and stroll – either way, you’re sure to come out of the experience very fancy and impressive πŸ˜‰

Pro-Tip: We suggest starting at the 100 Block of Gay St. around 6pm and working your way south. Make sure to hit staples like the Emporium, Visit Knoxville, and the Art Market!

This Month:
πŸ‘‰ Enjoy the Christmas Parade on Gay St.
πŸ‘‰ Check out the West Fifth Studios’ Open House

WIVK Knoxville Christmas Parade!

If you ask a Knoxvillian, it’s not really Christmas until Santa strolls down Gay Street. The First Friday of December is the WIVK Christmas Parade! This annual parade heads right down Gay St. in an array of lights and colors and Christmas music. (This year’s Grand Marshals are local healthcare heroes!) We suggest coupling the evening with a hot chocolate a la Cruze Farm or a holiday cocktail from Tern Club. Downtown can get pretty crowded for the parade so…
