It’s Halloween week (Halloweek, if you will😉) witch means there is plenty to boo in Knoxville, Tennessee! Whether you want to hit as many spooky events as possible or you need to oh-so-carefully select your one golden extroverted opportunity, here are a bunch of Halloween events for all ghosts and goblins to check out this week!
Hit up the south side on Saturday, October 30th! Grab your punchcard at SouthSide Garage and then head to all your favorite spots for drink specials, prizes, and other spooky goodies. Alliance, Hi-Wire, South Coast Pizza, Simpl, Printshop, Landing House, Trailhead, and Redbud Kitchen are all participating! (There are drag shows happening at Simpl, just sayin.)
Head back the next day for the Halloween Market! From 2-6pm, you can enjoy local shopping and trick or treating with all the vendors. Costumes encouraged!
Monster Mash Dance Party
Xul Beer Co. is throwing a Monster Mash Dance Party on Friday, October 29th from 10pm-2am! If there’s a business perfectly calibrated to throw an amazing Halloween party, it’s the dark and elegant Xul Beer Co. They’ll have a DJ, a costume contest, a limited Halloween draft menu – everything you need for a spooky night out!
North Knox has their own spooky beer crawl going on! It’s worth participating for the rad pun alone (zombeer? c’mon that’s good😂), but you can also enjoy drink specials, raffles, and beer releases. Hit up all your fave North Knox spots (everyone from Hops & Hollers to Crafty Bastard to The Donut Shop and Next Level) from 6-11pm on Saturday!
Five Thirty Lounge
The Five Thirty Lounge (the rooftop bar above the Hyatt) is hosting A Tarantino Production on Saturday, October 30th! You can sip on specialty themed cocktails while streaming Tarantino movies overlooking Quentin Tarantino’s hometown. PRO-TIP: Come dressed as your favorite QT character for a chance to win a $150 Five Thirty Lounge gift card.
If you’d rather head underground, The Vault is throwing a Halloween Party in their elegant basement bar on Saturday from 8pm-1am! Dress in costume to get a complimentary drink at the door, then enjoy dancing and spooky cocktails all night long.
Want to hear something super scary? Halloween is also the very last Sunsphere Sunday show at World’s Fair Park! St. Paul and the Broken Bones always put on an incredible show and Halloween is sure to make it even better! Gates open at 5pm, music starts at 6, and costumes are encouraged – duh!
Let’s be honest, Token Game Tavern has been gearing up for Halloween all year long. You didn’t think they’d stick to just one party, did you? No, they’re throwing a three night celebration of all things Halloween. Friday is all things Beetlejuice, Saturday is Zombie Prom, and Sunday’s theme is iconic Hollywood horror movies. You’re going to want to dress up for these because these guys don’t play around!
Crafty Bastard – West
If you’re lookin’ for more chill brewery vibes this Saturday, the folks at Crafty Bastard West are throwing their own Halloween Party! They’ve got live music from Zero Point Covers on Saturday (dancing highly encouraged), a costume contest, and a couple beer releases. Yes, yes, and yes.
Monster Mash Halloween Party
Orange Hat Brewing Co. is holding down the freaky fort in Hardin Valley! They’ve got costume contests for everyone from couples to puppers, a DJ slingin’ spooky songs, and themed beers and ‘bucha. Should you be there? You ‘bucha! 😉
Whether you want to party the night away or hand out tootsie rolls in your footie pajamas, we hope you have a great time celebrating in the
Scruffy Spooky City! Be safe and have fun, kids! 😉
