Mabry-Hazen House is hosting an old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration on Thursday, July 4th, 2019 from 5:30pm-10pm. Gather with friends, family, and museum staff to celebrate Independence Day, the Declaration of Independence, and community. Enjoy great views, good food and beer, live music, and tours of the 1858 house in a fun, casual atmosphere. Last year nearly 250 people attended our Fourth of July celebration and we expect the same attendance this year.
Overlooking downtown Knoxville to the west and the Great Smoky Mountains to south, historic Mabry's Hill enjoys a spectacular view of the City of Knoxville's Festival on the Fourth fireworks. Launched from Henley Street Bridge, the western side of Mabry's Hill offers an unparalleled seat to the city’s firework show. “When you see the view here,” says Executive Director, Patrick Hollis, “you understand what drew Mabrys, Civil War armies, the Hazens, and present-day Knoxvillians to this place. At 230 feet above the river, Mabry’s Hill offers an incomparable 360-degree panorama of the city.”
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and spread out on over 7 acres of greenspace near downtown and right off I-40. Take in the surrounding natural beauty and history while savoring food from Knox Wurst food truck and beer from a local brewery. Tickets include two adult beverages. Food will be available for purchase from Knox Wurst. Lemonade, and water will also be served.
We'll also have several activities for kids and the young at heart including sack races, seed spitting contests, three-legged races, bocce, croquet, corn hole, cake walk and much more. Tours of the historic home will begin at 6pm and fireworks start at 9:35pm. Avoid the downtown traffic and take it easy with this laid-back celebration. It is the perfect time to come chill on Mabry’s hill!
Event will occur rain or shine. Tickets and more information is available at www.mabryhazen.com/fourth-of-july.
