Knoxville First Friday

Knoxville is home to a diverse community of artists, arts organizations and cultural institutions. 13 years ago, the community came together on the First Friday of every month in downtown Knoxville. Over recent years, the celebration has extended throughout the city, encouraging people to venture out and enjoy great art and great company throughout all of Knoxville.

A growing number of galleries and venues throughout the city feature a variety of artists’ displays and live music. Downtown anchors include The Art Market, The Emporium and the downtown Visitors Center, home of the WDVX Blue Plate Special – all conveniently located on Gay Street. Stroll, sip and shop throughout the evening! Meander over to Market Square and the Old City for additional art, entertainment and dining options.
