Celebrates Spring with Firefly Nights

Inspired by the synchronous fireflies that attract thousands of visitors to Elkmont and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park every spring, this enchanting light installation adds a bit of sparkle to the trees of Market Square with more than 12,000 lights that “flash” from sunset to sunrise. 

Every Night
Now through the end of June

Enjoy the warmer weather and longer days by exploring Downtown this spring. You'll find more than 60 outdoor patios, spring cocktails, spring coffees, great shopping and fun for the entire family.

Firefly Nights is sponsored by the Downtown Knoxville Alliance, Christmas Décor of Knoxville, Dogwood Arts and the City of Knoxville.
