Be a Little Wicked

Got a familiar chill running down your spine? It might be the anticipation of autumn weather—but we hope it’s a little something more. It's October in Downtown Knoxville and we’re celebrating a fabulous fall and a wicked cool Halloween. 

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

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

🕷 To get into a spooky mood, plan a wicked walk to search for creepy-crawly critters and phantom-phriendly photo ops.

🕷 Back in 2023! We’ve got a family-friendly scavenger hunt for all fun-lovers and amateur detectives. Find the Wicked Cool Cats hiding in nine storefront windows throughout the district—they’re purr-fect ambassadors to help you explore all that Downtown has to offer.

🕷 There will be just the right witches’ brew of weird and wonderful events to get your goosebumps going.

🕷 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.

It’s Weird. It’s Wonderful. It’s Wicked Cool.
