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 ghosts around every corner. Halloween is nearly here, and we hope you’ll join us for some good old-fashioned wicked fun.

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

There’s a little something hair-raising for everyone, young and old. Enjoy a cocktail in the eerie glow of Market Square, browse Halloween-themed specials at local businesses, or enter our fabulous costume contest with great prizes. And be sure to check out our creepy-crawly photo ops all around Downtown so you can share with your social circle.

For the serious Halloween connoisseur, we offer 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 our list of weird and wonderful events.

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.
