Christmas in the City

Regal Celebration of Lights
The City of Knoxville’s annual Christmas in the City celebrations have been adapted to safely accommodate participants and reduce the risks of spreading COVID-19 during the holiday season.

Our formal “Celebration of Lights” will not take place on the Friday after Thanksgiving this year, but downtown Knoxville will be decorated and lit for the season beginning on November 23rd with our forest of lit trees in Krutch Park as well as the city’s 42 ft. Christmas Tree on Gay Street, a family photo favorite!


Market Square will shine with new, peppermint-themed lighting displays with extended patio areas provided in partnership with the Downtown Knoxville Alliance. Downtown visitors should look out for Window Wonderland decorations and special holiday treats on the menus and shelves of businesses participating in the Peppermint Trail!
