The Elf on the Shelf® Adventure

Join us for a fun-filled holiday scavenger hunt and search for Santa’s magical helpers in Downtown Knoxville. Scout Elves will be sent from the North Pole by Santa to more than two dozen Knoxville businesses.

November 23 to January 6

In over 2 dozen locations in Downtown Knoxville

Visit any of the participating locations and pick up your Elf on the Shelf® North Pole Pass. Then just start your magical journey! Collect a store stamp at each Scout Elf sighting...and continue the adventure. 

Diligent seekers collecting twenty or more stamps will be entered to win grand prizes. There will also be lots of fun, treats, and additional prizes along the way. Share where you find Scout Elves at #elvesinknox.

Interested in finding some free parking? No search needed. We have over 5,500 spaces free on nights and weekends. Find details here

Happy holiday hunting!
