First Friday Downtown

01 Dec
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Downtown Knoxville

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

Downtown Knoxville 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 😉

Pro-Tip: We suggest starting around the 100 Block of Gay St. around 5 pm and working your way through the Old City. But make sure to hit staples like The Emporium, Visit Knoxville, and the Art Market!

⭐️ The Downtown Christmas Parade is happening down Gay St!
🌟 Neighbors Lilienthal Gallery and Pivot Point Gallery will have sips, snacks, & featured artists/exhibits.
⭐️ Pretentious Glass will be open with glass demos – snag a beer from next door & watch from 6-9PM!
🌟 Current Cycle is hosting their Holiday Party from 7-10pm with free drinks & snacks out in Bearden!
⭐️ Knox Brew Tours is hosting a Knox Brew TUNES tour!
🌟 Want some friends to explore with? Start makin’ new friends right here!
