A Knoxville Family’s Guide to October 2022

October Knoxville Family Events

Anne of Green Gables said “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers” and Knoxville Moms couldn’t agree more!  There are lots of events to make you smile this month.  Pirate-loving kids can’t miss the Tennessee Medieval Faire/Tennessee Pirate Fest. It’s taking place every weekend this month in Harriman.  The Knox County Parents as Teachers is hosting its 5th annual Roll & Read at Safety City.  Books will come alive and fun activities will abound at this free event. It’s geared for children ages five and under.  The popular Taste of Turkey Creek is back this year. Adults and kids can sample cuisine from nearly two dozen of the top restaurants in Knoxville.

You can cheer on the Vols beyond the football field.  Both the Tennessee women’s soccer team and women’s volleyball team have games this month. Soccer tickets are free.  Volleyball tickets are usually $5.00, but on Sunday, October 9th Tennessee is hosting “Kids Day” and admission for children 12 and under will be free.  Are you itching for all the fall fun?  For complete guides of Halloween activities, check our list of Knoxville Halloween Events and Knoxville Haunted Houses & Spooky Spots.  If you’re looking for other fall events, check out our Knoxville Moms Pumpkin Patches, Corn Mazes & More and our Apple Picking in East Tennessee & Beyond guideKnoxville Moms hopes you and your family have a happy October!
