Knoxville, TN - Knoxville is a place where you can get out and have an adventure whatever your enthusiasm level. Join us as we kick off Bike Boat Brew & Bark in June. It's time to ride your bike, take your boat, bring your dog and grab a great local brew around town. Bike Boat Brew & Bark celebrates the outdoor adventurer, the dog lover, the craft beer enthusiast, the local and the tourist looking to discover something unexpected. Explore Knoxville in a new way as we launch Bike Boat Brew & Bark June 4-5.

"This initiative involves many of the partners and activities that we promote every day. Our goal is to increase awareness about all Knoxville has to offer." says Visit Knoxville President Kim Bumpas. "The four Bs will encourage locals and visitors to discover year-round adventure as they come out to support the Powerboat Classic, a great event we're pleased to bring back to Knoxville."

Knoxville Powerboat Classic will take place June 4-5 on the Tennessee River at Volunteer Landing. This marks the third year for the boating event in Knoxville; Powerboat Superleague is the nation's oldest and most respected powerboat racing circuit for Formula Two and Formula Three boats. Grab some friends and watch in amazement as racers from around the country circle inside the banks of the Tennessee at speeds up to 100 miles an hour. Plus, there will be entertainment by Hoyt's Watersports and Smoky Mountain Dock Dogs at Volunteer Landing.

A few suggestions on how to make the most of Bike Boat Brew & Bark:

  •     Early bird gets the worm at the Farmer's Market; then walk over with some fresh baked goods.
  •     Check out the powerboat races; then grab a Knoxville craft beer.
  •     Ride your bike along the greenways to see the races; then continue on to enjoy the Urban Wilderness.
  •     Plan an outing along the river with your four legged friends and, remember, there are plenty of dog-friendly patios around town.
  •     Bring your boat and watch the races with friends before heading out for the day.
  •     Tucker the kids out by letting them watch Smoky Mountain Dock Diving Dogs demonstrations.

Live it, experience it and continue to explore it all year long. We'll show you how on June 4 and 5 with Visitors Centers open on Gay Street, at Volunteer Land­ing and at Outdoor Knoxville. Staff will help guide you on your next adventure, providing special maps, bro­chures and itineraries.
