The Dogwood Arts Festival brings fantastic events to Knoxville all year long. One event that is coming very soon is the Rhythm N Blooms Festival. One of my favorite bands, Shovels and Rope, will be a part of the weekend this year as well as another artist to know Alanna Royale.
The weekend (April 4-6) is absolutely packed. Packed. There is definitely something for everyone and passes are very affordable. If you live in Knoxville you should certainly carve out some time to enjoy some fantastic art in the community. If you live outside of Knoxville, make a day or weekend out of it and visit some of my favorite places downtown while you're in town (Bliss home store, Tomato Head, Suttree's, Crown and Goose, Knox Mason).
