Downtown Knoxville Ten Day Planner (11/7-11/16/2021)

Koyo, 416 Clinch Avenue, Knoxville, October 2021
Food from Seoul Brothers, Marble City Market, Depot Street, Knoxville, November 2021

As events are opening up, we’re listing a combination of virtual and live events. The rules are the same – if you want your event included, please make a Facebook event, invite me (Alan Sims – you’ll have to friend me) and it will be included. I need enough lead time that the list can be put together the Wednesday before you want your event included. If you’d like more eyes on your business or event, consider hitting the “advertise” link at the top of this page or shoot me an email at Knoxvilleurbanguy@gmail.com for more details.

Mask up when you need to, get vaccinated if you haven’t, and let’s keep the fun times rolling!
