The Emporium Center

Enjoy the culture and spirit of downtown Knoxville every First Friday of the month! Thousands of residents and visitors tour art galleries, venues, and related spaces, celebrating the work of local artists, musicians, culinary food vendors, and more! The Emporium Center, located at 100 S. Gay Street in the heart of the Arts District, is always a hotspot of activity, hosting new exhibitions each month, live jazz music, flamenco dancing, darkroom demonstrations, and working artist studios. Join us on First Fridays from 5:00-9:00 PM. Admission is always free! More info here!

First Fridays at The Emporium Center are hosted by the Arts & Culture Alliance.
