Be a Little Wicked

Got a familiar chill running down your spine? It might be the autumn weather—but we hope it’s a little something more. Welcome to October in Downtown Knoxville, where we’re ready to celebrate a fabulous fall and a wicked cool Halloween.

We’ve got spirits, we’ve got 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.

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

🕷  New for 2022! 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’s just the right witches’ brew of weird and wonderful events to get your goosebumps going. Go ahead—get a terminal case of the creeps on a ghastly ghost tour. Summon your inner undead at a Zombie Walk. And by all means, give yourself a proper fright at a viewing of a horror classic—it’s what screams were made for.

🕷 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.
