The Dogwood Arts Festival is a Knoxville tradition meant to promote and celebrate local art and culture. Signifying the arrival of spring, the festival is family friendly with arts and crafts at every corner.
Admission is free, so there is nothing stopping you from going downtown to experience Knoxville’s amazing artistry from April 27-29, 2018. Friday: 11am-9pm, Saturday: 10am-9pm, Sunday: 11am-5pm.
Held in Downtown Knoxville’s historic Market Square, there will be more than 100 local artists showcasing and selling their original artwork in a variety of media. The highlight of the festival though is, of course, the flowers exhibited throughout the festival, otherwise known as Blooming Boulevard.
Established in 1961, the Dogwood Arts Festival is in it’s 58th year. First made as a way to beautify Knoxville after a bad review from John Gunther, a writer for a New York newspaper, it has become one of our most popular events.
The weather this weekend is supposed to be sunny with a high of 70, so be sure to bring sunblock and dress comfortably.
