Unless you’ve been here before, a visit to Knoxville, Tennessee, might knock your socks off. From its fantastic food to its live music, it has a ton going on. Take the Tennessee Theatre for instance. The historic building opened in 1928. It went through a big renovation, but continues to be an elite venue. Then there are the festivals in Knoxville, which might be as strong at the Tennessee Theatre and the University of Tennessee Volunteers combined. Knoxville festivals give visitors and locals the chance to get acquainted with Tennessee culture. Manchester, Tennessee, might have the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, but Knoxville has its own concoction of festivals featuring top notch music, such as the Big Ears Festival.
