Be a Little Wicked 🧟‍♀️


Welcome to October in Downtown Knoxville, where we’re ready to celebrate a fabulous fall and a wicked cool Halloween.


We’ve got spirits, we’ve got spiders, and we’re counting on things to go bump in the night.


There’s a little something hair-raising for everyone, young and old. Like cocktails in the eerie glow of Market Square, Halloween-themed specials at local businesses, and a fabulous photo costume contest with great prizes. And be sure to check out our creepy-crawly photo ops all around Downtown so you can share with your social circle.


Back in 2023! We’ve got a family-friendly scavenger hunt for all fun-lovers and amateur detectives. Find the Wicked Cool Cats hiding in nine storefront windows throughout the district—they’re purr-fect ambassadors to help you explore all that Downtown has to offer.


For the serious Halloween connoisseur, we offer even bigger chills and thrills, from summoning your inner undead at a Zombie Walk to giving yourself a proper fright at a viewing of a horror classic. Don’t miss our list of weird and wonderful events.


Make some plans to hang out with us—even the whole Halloween weekend, if you’re so inclined. We promise it’ll be wicked cool.
