A Knoxville Family’s Guide to July 2021

The mercury is rising in East Tennessee and so is the number of family friendly events in July! Narramore Farms is hosting a Sunflower Festival to welcome all the big blooms. Guests will find 20 different varieties and can even pick their own to bring home. For more information on tickets and times, click here. There are other spots in East Tennessee to view fields of spectacular sunflowers. Knoxville Moms put together this list to help you find them. Ijams Nature Center will be the backdrop this year for the popular Shakespeare series usually found on Market Square. The new location also brings a new name–“Shakespeare Off the Square.”  Audiences will be limited to 200 so tickets are expected to sell fast. If your children aren’t ready for Shakespeare, check out “Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr.” brought to you by Knoxville Children’s Theatre. Tickets are $12 to $15 each and can be purchased here.

You can cool off from the July heat in the new splash pad in Lenoir City. A grand opening celebration is set for July 10th complete with free ice cream for the kiddos (and maybe some adults, too!) It’s hard to think about going back to school when you’re still enjoying summer, but mark your calendars for the Tennessee tax-free weekend. It begins Friday, July 30th and ends Sunday, August 1st. Find out what’s included—and what isn’t—here.
