Have a Ghoulish Good Time

Something (fun) lurks around nearly every corner! We’ve created a magical mood in Market Square with wickedly wonderful ghosts and lights—and spooky photo ops and creepy-crawly frights throughout downtown. Explore the city on foot and enjoy the surprises we’ve tucked away.


You'll find Wicked Cool additions for photos at these locations through October 31, plus frightful and fun decor at downtown businesses:

🕷 1 – Wicked Knox Photo Op [17 Market Square at the Knoxville Chamber and Knoxville Entrepreneur Center]

🕷 2 – Ghoulish Grove [Market Square Grove at Market St and Union Ave]

🕷 3 – Krutch Park Creature [Archway at Market St and Union Ave]

🕷 4 – Costume Photo Contest [604 S Gay St at the Tennessee Theatre marquee, plus other frightful sights located throughout downtown!]
