The Downtown Knoxville Ten Day Planner (1/8/2016 – 1/17/2017)

David Rawlston and Merry, Blue Plate Special, Visitors Center, Knoxville, November 2016

If you want to be certain your event is included on this calendar, I’ll need your event two weeks in advance. The absolute best way to make sure I include your event is to make a FB event and invite me – two weeks in advance. My FB “events” are the one place I’ll go to every time – if you invite me before I write the post.

If you see an event I’ve missed and you’d like to plug, please comment below. I am no longer able to add to the list events about which I was not informed in advance – it’s just gotten too big, and that’s a good thing. Staying true to the scope of the blog, I’ll only list downtown or near-downtown events. Any number of venues outside of downtown have some great events, but I have to draw a line somewhere. If you want to add those in a comment, that’s fine. Please “Friend” me (Alan Sims) on Facebook and invite me to your events. Look over to the right of this post and not only “friend” me, but “like” Inside of Knoxville. Subscribe (also to the right) to make sure you catch all the posts.

Want to get the word out more directly and get more eyes on your event or business? Consider placing a front page ad! For $350 (or $500 for an ad twice as large) you get a full month exposure to around 40,000 different people (and growing). Contact me for details @ KnoxvilleUrbanGuy@gmail.com.

    How does an organization or business get an event listed on this calendar? I am an artist with the Broadway Studios and Gallery. We have regular gallery shows each month. We are located at 1127 Broadway. Is that close enough to downtown?

    • KnoxvilleUrbanGuy says:

      Yes. I’ve listed events there in the past. The events page explains explicitly what I need – friend me, FB event, invite me. Takes just a couple of minutes and allows you to invite everybody else. It’s the one sure way to be on the calendar.
