Are you looking for an easy way to meet people in Knoxville? In New2Knox Small Groups, you get to explore your new city and build community as you hop around Knoxville for five weeks with the same 6-8 people. Your friendly Small Group Host will help break the ice and be your personal friendship guru as you get exclusive looks into 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!).
Basically, you get to know your new city and your new best friend all in one experience!

What Small Groups are Available?
COFFEE HOP: Coffee Hops happen on Saturday mornings at 10am. You’ll get sips and snacks from a new coffee shop each week, along with bonus activities which can range from yoga to cookie decorating to crafting. The coffee shops are in a different neighborhood each week for ample exploring opportunities. Coffee Hops are $125/person.
BREW HOP: Brew Hops happen on varying weeknights at 6:30pm. Each week will take you to a new neighborhood where you’ll get sips, snacks, and inside scoops from some of our favorite breweries and taprooms. Most weeks involve an actual “hop” as you hit up 1-3 spots with your N2K group. Brew Hops are $150/person.
ADVENTURE: Adventure Small Groups take the Brew Hop to the next level. While most weeks still involve a beverage, you’ll also tack on things like paddle boarding, hiking, axe throwing, and bowling with your new BFFs. The activities may range, but the fun stays consistent! Adventure Hops are also $150/person.
HIKING GROUP: In a Hiking Group, you get to safely explore trails around the Knoxville area while making adventure buddies for the long haul! The other best part is that this is currently our most affordable Small Group experience at $75/person.
MOM GROUP: We’ve heard it takes a village to raise a kid, so we figured we’d help you find yours! (While kids are welcome to come along if they’re not in school or daycare, the main goal is for moms to make friends with other moms.) Mom Groups are led by local mamas and hop to different kid-friendly spots around Knoxville that grown-ups can thoroughly enjoy too. Then make sure to call the sitter because the final week is a Mamas Night Out! Moms Groups are $125/person.
AND MORE… Check back in the coming months for Active Groups and more!
