Follow the Peppermint Trail
November 27 thru January 3
Follow the peppermints along the sidewalks in Downtown Knoxville to discover all sorts of treats featuring the favorite red-and-white candy, plus plenty of gingerbread, cinnamon, cranberry, apple spice, and other holiday flavors. From candy cane coffees and cranberry cocktails, to eggnogs and peppermint martinis, you'll feel the holiday magic with every sip! Many treats and cocktails on the Peppermint Trail are available for takeout, so you can enjoy from home!
Plus, restaurants make holiday cheesecakes, fudge, donuts, cookies, and macarons, and boutiques and gift shops sell holiday t-shirts, soaps, and scented candles.
A list of businesses – and their treats – is below. Come back to this site often as we add new holiday specials.
We're excited to welcome you to the Peppermint Trail, but remember to make health and safety the top priority. Wear your mask (more festive, the better), practice physical-distancing, and stay home if you're sick.
Holiday magic awaits along the Peppermint Trail. Come back to this site often, as we add holiday specials throughout the season. Post photos of your peppermint adventures with #KnoxPeppermint. You’re MINT to be downtown this season!
