Happy New Year Knoxville!


Hello Loves,


New Year’s Eve is almost here and if you’re like me, you are still thinking about what to do to celebrate. One could go downtown to watch our very own ball drop or head to the bars and rub elbows with the scruffy city millennials. Perhaps one could dart out to one’s local church for a family-friendly event? There is a wide assortment of options, so I thoughtfully put together a list of 30 events going.


Remember, if you drink, be sure to call Uber or have a friend or family member take you home. Have an amazing and SAFE New Year.




Old City Pub Crawl

Carleo Entertainment, 103.5 WIMZ, Hilton Knoxville, Jack Daniels, Miller Light and Dos Equis will host the New Year’s Eve in the Old City Pub Crawl with six participating locations.

The event will start at 8 p.m. Dec. 31. Those who purchase a wristband will have access to Southbound Knoxville, Hannas Old City, Carleo’s, Wagon Wheel, NV Nightclub and The Bowery throughout the night. Each venue will be open for those 21 and up, and all will have VIP areas.

Wristbands cost $15 in advance and $20 on the day of the pub crawl. Wristbands purchased in advance can be picked up before 8 p.m. on the day of the event, and they will be available to purchase at the participating venues during the pub crawl.
