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 be adopted by more than two dozen Knoxville businesses.

November 25 to December 24

In over 2 dozen locations in Downtown Knoxville

Once we start on November 25, 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 of downtown merchandise and gift cards. There will also be lots of fun, treats, and additional prize drawings 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! You'll also find a scout elf on the green line of the FREE trolley which runs between Gay St and the Old City with stops about every 10 minutes. 

Happy holiday hunting!
