5 New Things to Know About Christmas in Knoxville


1. The Christmas-themed Drive-In at the Midway films have been chosen.

The City of Knoxville and the Knox County Public Library will present Drive-In at the Midway Holiday Edition with free movie screenings at Chilhowee Park. On Friday, Nov. 20, Elf will be shown. On Friday, Dec. 4, it’s National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

2. Admission is free.

But attendees must pre-register at https://www.knoxlib.org/movies

3. Watch on a 40-by-22-foot screen from your car or the parking spot beside it.

Each vehicle may bring in the number of passengers for which it is rated (number of seatbelts). Each reserved space includes an adjacent parking space to accommodate blankets or lawn chairs. Guests will need an FM radio to receive the film’s audio from an FM transmitter.

4. Meanwhile, talk your neighbors into joining the Neighborhood Holiday Trails beginning Nov. 30. 

“We know decorating for the holidays is a spirited, sometimes competitive, seasonal pursuit, and we want to encourage neighborhoods to best themselves and help area residents enjoy the results in a safe way,” said Eden Slater, assistant coordinator of the Office of Neighborhood Empowerment.

5. Register before Nov. 13 by contacting Eden Slater at eslater@knoxvilletn.gov

Participating neighborhoods will be identified on a Neighborhood Holiday Trails map posted on the City’s website and shared through the Neighborhood Advisory email newsletter and social media. For more information on Knoxville’s Neighborhood Holiday Trails, visit KnoxvilleTN.gov/Christmas
