Knoxville First Friday


Knoxville’s First Friday events are being scheduled and rescheduled daily. For the most accurate information on what’s happening on the first Friday of each month and every other day in Knoxville, please refer to our Events Page. We look forward to returning to the First Friday we all know and love in the near future.

Knoxville is home to a diverse community of artists, arts organizations and cultural institutions. 14 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.

Support Knoxville’s local artists and enjoy a night on the town… this coming month… at First Friday.
