Join Ijams Nature Center and the Knoxville Poetry Slam for a night of haikis, poems, sonnets, and more about how much you love LOVE or love to hate it!

Tickets are $5 at the door. Doors open at 7pm for the Social Hour; the mic officially opens at 8pm. Food truck and a beer garden will be available for food and beverage purchases. No outside coolers or alcohol permitted. We will be indoors for this event!

This event, like all Knoxville Poetry Slam events, is considered all ages; however, parents, please use your best discretion when bringing little ones.

So come out and invite your friends for some early Valentine’s fun that you won’t want to miss!
