Be a Little Wicked

You know it’s October in Downtown Knoxville when you first feel a chill in the air—and you start to spot thrilling delights around every corner. Halloween is nearly here, and we hope you’ll join us for some good old-fashioned wicked fun during the month of October.

We’ll have spirits, we’ll have spiders, and we’re counting on things to go bump in the night.

🕷 There’ll be a little something hair-raising for everyone, young and old. Cocktail in the eerie glow of Market Square, Halloween-themed specials at local businesses, and a fabulous costume photo contest with great prizes.

🕷 For the serious Halloween connoisseur, Downtown offers even bigger chills and thrills, from summoning your inner undead at a Zombie Walk to giving yourself a proper fright at a viewing of a horror classic. Don’t miss these weird and wonderful events.

🕷 And just for fun, we’ll have Wicked Cool Cats hiding in storefront windows throughout the downtown district for a family-friendly feline scavenger hunt.

🕷 Make some plans to hang out with us—even the whole Halloween weekend, if you’re so inclined. We promise it’ll be wicked cool.
