How to Holiday Downtown

Whether you’re planning a winter weekend get-away, a festive celebration with life-long friends, or creating new family traditions, you’ll find that "something special" in Downtown Knoxville, Tennessee this holiday season.

This festive time of the year transforms Downtown Knoxville into a sparkly, bright, and merry place with memory-making magic for adults and children alike. Of course, there's eating, drinking, window shopping, and gift buying, but there's also so much more!

Get lost on the Peppermint Trail, search for Santa's elves in a magical scevenger hunt, skate under twinkling lights in Market Square, and explore holiday lights and holiday markets throughout the season. Enjoy lights and beautifully decorated storefronts decked out and dipped in peppermint.

This holiday season, we invite you to slow down to enjoy Downtown Knoxville.
