Do: Fourth of July on Mabry's Hill

When: Sunday, July 4th, 4pm-10pm

Mabry-Hazen House is hosting an old-fashioned Fourth of July front porch celebration on Sunday, July 4th, 2021. Gather to celebrate Independence Day, the Declaration of Independence, and community. Enjoy great views, good food and beer, live music, and tours of the 1858 house for $12 (includes two drinks from a local brewery). Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and spread out on the 7 acres of greenspace near downtown and right off I-40. 

Overlooking downtown Knoxville to the west and the Great Smoky Mountains to south, historic Mabry's Hill enjoys a spectacular view of the City of Knoxville's Festival on the Fourth fireworks. Launched from Henley Street Bridge, the western side of Mabry's Hill offers an unparalleled panorama of the firework show. Avoid the downtown traffic and take it easy with this laid-back celebration. It is the perfect time to come chill on the hill!

Take in the surrounding natural beauty and history while savoring food from Knox Wurst and beer from a local brewery. We'll also have several activities for kids and the young at heart including a cake walk, sack races, seed spitting contests, three-legged races, bocce, croquet, corn hole, and much more. 

Event will occur rain or shine.
