Weekend To Do List, April 5-7 , 2019

Do: Dogwood Arts Chalk Walk

When: Saturday, April 6th, 8am-8pm (awards at 7pm)
Where: Market Square Knoxville

The Chalk Walk remains one of the fan favorites among Dogwood Arts visitors in April! The street painting festival, whose origination as a featured event of Dogwood Arts, drew inspiration from a 16th century Italian happening, turns Knoxville’s downtown sidewalks into a seemingly infinite canvas for the region’s most talented professional and student artists. Dogwood Arts brings this event to Knoxville once again to continue to educate visitors and artists, alike, of this lost art in hopes of keeping it alive for future generations.

The 2019 People’s Choice Award is presented by WIVK! This year, you can text-to-vote for your favorite Square! Visit the WIVK tent at the event to find out how.

Knoxville’s iconic dogwood trails date back to 1955 and today cover more than 85 miles in 12 neighborhoods throughout the city. Take a drive, a walk, or a bike ride and enjoy the scenic natural beauty of our region!

Follow the pink lines beginning at the entrance to the Fox Den community to experience the beauty of the Farragut Dogwood trail. Established in 2001, the trail wanders thru three distinct neighborhoods covering 7.9 miles of impeccably maintained properties. Catch a glimpse of Fox Den’s 18-hole golf course which is home to the PGA’s ‘Knoxville Open’ golf tournament, enjoy the spring flowering trees of Country Manor where you might just see a croquet tournament under way on a warm spring day at the Knoxville Croquet Club, and take in the historic charm of Village Green patterned after Colonial Williamsburg.
