The festival will move to the beautifully redesigned Performance Lawn at World’s Fair Park and will feature 75 art vendors working in mixed media, pottery, painting, photography, glass, jewelry, sculpture, and more. The Dogwood Arts Festival is free to attend, although you will have to reserve a ticket online prior to the event.
The event will also feature live music from local favorites on two small stages, take-home art activities for kids, and a concession area with food vendors, beer, wine, and cocktails provided by Sugarlands Distilling Company.
Greater in size than two football fields, the Performance Lawn at World’s Fair Park provides ample space for attendees and vendors to safely social distance. There is a strict capacity limit and guests will be required to reserve a free ticket online prior to the event. Tickets are available in two-hour increments and there will be a designated period on Friday morning for elderly and immunocompromised attendees.
Masks are required for all patrons over the age of 12 and must remain on unless guests are seated in the concession area. Staff, volunteers, and artists will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms each day before entering the event.
The Dogwood Arts Festival is sponsored by ORNL Federal Credit Union, Home Federal Bank, Visit Knoxville, the Tennessee Arts Commission, Grayson Auto Group, the East Tennessee Foundation, the Pilot Company, and the Downtown Knoxville Alliance. Call (865) 637-4561 for questions or concerns.
