Knox Area Weekend To Do List, September 3-5, 2021

What a great weekend we have in-store!  Check out this edition of the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List! So much to do, to try, to eat, to buy, and more!

Do: First Friday Art Walk 

When: Friday, September 3rd, 5pm-Til Late
Where: Downtown Knoxville 

On the first Friday of each month, the streets of Downtown Knoxville come alive for a casual evening of experiencing art in all forms.

Explore galleries, studios, and artist collectives; roam through shops hosting open houses and local artist exhibits; enjoy performance art and live music in the streets and a variety of venues; drop in restaurants along the way and treat yourself to drinks and great food.

Start your evening at any participating business. Then look for ArtWalk flags to help guide your way to events that are free and open to the public. Every month – year round – brings fresh new exhibits, performances, dining opportunities, and special events. Schedules vary from place to place and are updated the last week of each month.

The thriving arts community is one of the things we love most about Downtown Knoxville. So come take a walk...ride a free trolley...and experience the arts, warmth and community of the neighborhood. Look for the trolley marked ArtWalk! It's FREE and will take you beween Market Square, Gay Street and the Old City.
