Keep Knoxville Beautiful Hosts Annual Rocky Top Pickin’ Party

Posted: 09/13/2017
Pickin PartyJoin Keep Knoxville Beautiful on Friday, September 29 from 6 pm until 10 pm at the Mabry-Hazen House for a music-filled fall evening. The Rocky Top Pickin’ Party will feature Kelsey Woods with special musical guest Andy Wood, the Tennessee Stifflegs, and you. All musicians are invited to play. 

This family-friendly and waste-free fundraiser for Keep Knoxville Beautiful is unlike any other in Knoxville; in between sets, pickers of all levels will form breakout sessions around the grounds. Bring your own instrument to join in one of these pickin’ sessions and you will receive one free beer/beverage. General advance tickets are $10 or $5 at the door and all kids under age 12 get in free. The Captain Muchachos and Oinks and Cluckers food trucks will be on-site, and beer and beverages will be available. 

Come join KKB in celebrating our clean, green, and beautiful city with music, pickin’, good food, and friends.
