A Knoxville Family’s Guide to December 2019

December Knoxville Family Events

December is finally here and the holiday season is in full swing! All the hustle and bustle can be exhausting so it’s nice to recharge with some quality family time. We found plenty of family fun that will fit the bill.  Even better, many of the events are FREE! To kick things off  (or should I say pedal), grab your winter coats and your children’s bicycles for a spin around Safety City in Knoxville. There will be festive lights, a dance party, crafts, toy train rides and that jolly old elf!  This magical event is FREE and no tickets are required. 

The Market Square Farmers’ Market is getting a boost of holiday spirit. In addition to the usual seasonal produce and farm products you’ll find special treats like chocolate, baked goods, prepared foods and crafts perfect for gift giving. It doesn’t cost a thing to stroll through the market and take in all the sights and delicious smells. For the young and young at heart, catch the classic movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” on the big screen at the historic Tennessee Theatre. The event is free, but arrive early because seating is limited. Your family can ring in the new year without staying up past your bedtime (or your children’s!)  Adara Photography & Events is hosting a 1920s themed New Year’s Eve party with food, dancing, crafts and more. 

The Muse Knoxville is holding its annual “Cheer in the New Year at Noon!” Tickets sell out fast for this popular event so snag them while you can.  If you’re looking for a complete guide of ALL the holiday events happening in East Tennessee, Knoxville Moms has you covered.  Check out our “Guide to Holiday Events in Knoxville.”  The Knoxville Moms team wishes you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
