It’s holiday time in Tennessee, so get out your glitter, track down your tinsel, and string up your lights!
Amidst all the gift shopping madness and the biting winter breeze, take a moment to enjoy the serenity of our cozy valley nestled against our special Smoky Mountains. Let’s come together in appreciation for our festive city brightened with the happy tidings and blessings of our close-knit community. Now we can proudly display our Knoxville love with keepsake ornaments designed to match any local’s holiday tree theme! Our Visitor Center Gift Shop carries an assorted collection of Knoxville ornaments with proceeds going directly back into our local community.
If you’re a fan of Knoxville maker Paris Woodhull and her beautiful murals and talented artistry, then you can’t miss out on her unique ornament design carried only at Visit Knoxville. Her acrylic ornament’s exclusive artwork showcases Knoxville’s bright sunshine, beautiful mountains, iconic Henley Bridge, and world famous Sunsphere. This thoughtfully drawn art includes some of Knoxville’s best and brightest attractions, a heartfelt memento for those of us in town and out! And if you love this art so much you want to wear it, buy a pin to attach on a jacket, purse, or wherever you collect pins.
And if you’re a Sunsphere fan, boy does Visit Knoxville have the perfect ornament selection for you! We carry two variations of the 1982 World’s Fair structure. Our World’s Fair Sunsphere is a sibling of the Space Needle in Seattle (World’s Fair 1962) and Eiffel Tower in Paris (World’s Fair 1889). With glass boasting layers of 24 karat gold dust, our Sunsphere shines oh-so brightly in our mountain-framed sky! We offer glittery glass-blown Sunsphere ornaments in two varieties to suit any décor, a large hanging Sunsphere, as well as a small small clip-on Sunsphere. Profits from purchase go directly to the Sunsphere Fund.
For loyal Gay Street and Tennessee Theatre fans, the picturesque view of Knoxville’s Downtown is completed only by the shining beauty of our classic Tennessee Theatre Blade. The Tennessee Theatre has been proudly gracing Gay Street for almost a century. The sparkling sign’s joyful essence is displayed in our vintage-style glass-blown ornament ready to hang on your tree. Profits from purchase go directly to the Historic Tennessee Theater Foundation.
Support local during this holiday season and enjoy these beautiful baubles for many years to come!
