How to ArtWalk

Downtown Knox ArtWalk is a casual evening of art, music, food, fun, and community. There's no right or wrong way to experience it. Roam from spot to spot, find your favorite artists, meet and talk with friends along the way. Take a look at the list of events and decide where you want to start.


ArtWalk is free and open to the public with dozens of events happening within the walkable downtown district. In order to highlight additional events happening on the first Friday of each month, this site also includes some ticketed events. If tickets or charges apply, it is noted in the event listing.


Schedules vary from place to place. Some exhibitions open as early as 4 PM; most are open by 5:30 PM. You'll also find live music at several venues starting at 9 PM or 10 PM. Hours are included on this site, or check specific venue for details.
