What are New2Knox Hops?
New2Knox Hops are designed to help you build real, actual friendships while getting a taste of local businesses! You get to explore your new city and build community as you hop around Knoxville for five weeks with the same 5-10 people. Your friendly Hop Host will help break the ice and be your personal friendship guru as you experience some of Knoxville’s favorite businesses. And let’s be real, sometimes hanging out with new people is just awkward – but by week five, you’ll be old pals (and Knoxville experts to boot!).
Most Hops include sips & snacks at a new location each week, incentives to explore Knoxville, and plenty of intentional friendship-makin’. Your one-time fee covers all Hop experiences – but if you want more, you are always welcome to open up your own tab and keep livin’ large!
While whatever “Hop” you choose will determine the kind of activities you do, making friends & exploring your city is always the goal!
Who are Hops for?
We offer all kinds of hops! Find a hop in your age range or hop into one labeled “EVERYONE.” Our main demographic is women ages 21-40 (female friendships for the win!) so our hops do reflect that.
Each hop happens one night a week for five weeks. We ask that you can commit to at least four of those five weeks so everyone has the best chance at friendship-makin’!
What's the refund policy?
We keep these hops intentionally small, which can make backing out a bit of a bummer for everyone!
If you cancel…
30+ Days Before Night 1: 100% refund
14-30 Days Before Night 1: 50% refund
Less than 14 Days Before Night 1: No Refunds
When you sign up for a Hop, we suggest putting it in your calendar immediately so you’re fully ready for all the fun.
What else do I get when I sign up?
Besides the five week experience itself (and hopefully a whole new group of local friends!), as a Hop Alumni, you get exclusive invites to a handful of other events throughout the year where you have a chance to meet even moooore new friends!
Alumni events have been known to include everything from trivia nights to boat parties to a classy Christmas soiree (ooh la la!).
