A Knoxville Family’s Guide to March 2020

You don’t need “the luck of the Irish” this month to find something fun for your family to do in East Tennessee! March is full of events that will help you shake off winter and embrace spring. You and your children can build a birdhouse at Elder’s Ace Hardware and even learn about planting a garden to attract pollinators at Ijams Nature Center.

Since March weather can be unpredictable, there are indoor options for entertainment too. Baby Shark Live! is coming to the Tennessee Theatre in case you haven’t gotten enough of that song yet! The McClung Museum of Natural History is holding a “Medieval Day” which will feature activities, crafts and tours designed specifically for families.  Be sure to mark your calendar for Knoxville Moms’ second annual “Hangin’ with the Heroes” event. Your children can come dressed in their favorites superhero costumes and meet some of their favorites like Batman, Wonder Woman and Captain America. Plus, some of our community heroes will be on hand with fire trucks and police cars as long as duty doesn’t call!

Knoxville Family March Events

We’re all at least a wee bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day and you can celebrate at the Knox St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Cel-O’-bragh-tion on Saturday, March 14th in downtown Knoxville. The Knox Shamrock Fest benefiting East Tennessee Kidney Foundation will also offer St. Patty’s Day fun, including activities for children. We can’t think of a more perfect way to wish you and your family the best this month than a traditional Irish blessing. “May love and laughter light your days and warm your hearth and home!”
