Elf on the Shelf Adventure


Santa is sending Scout Elves to Downtown Knoxville for a magical The Elf on the Shelf® windowfront scavenger hunt from the day after Thanksgiving to January 2.


You'll meet Elves like Twinkle and Sprinkles keeping the sweets swirling at Cruze Farm Ice Cream, a sweet, outgoing Elf named Giggles running around Knoxville Soap Candle & GiftsPeppamint Cocobee keeping watch over all the delicious lattes at Awaken Coffee, and Mr. Dusty-Bottom working at Pretentious Glass Co's glass studio (which is kind of like Santa's workshop)! Meet all the Scout Elves here
