Downtown Knoxville Ten Day Planner (5/12 – 5/21/2019)

Scooters in Downtown Knoxville, May 2019

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 $600 (or $900 for an ad twice as large) you get a full month exposure with around 80,000 views. Contact me for details @

  1. Rhythm N’ Blooms programming at Boyd’s Jig & Reel is NOT free; it requires a festival pass. We do have a free street fair on Jackson’s Ave between Central and Morgan. And on Saturday, we have free music business workshops beginning at 10:30 am in the back room of Awaken Coffee.

  2. The 2019 Neighborhood Conference is Saturday, May 18th, not Friday May 17th.

  3. Hi, Alan. Jerome Bixby’s Man From Earth will open May 17th at Theatre Knoxville Downtown. Thanks.
