Memorial Day Weekend
Events in Knoxville

Knoxville is home to 21 museums with total annual attendance exceeding that of all the UT home football games combined. If you enjoy nature, hike in the Smokies or visit IJAMS Nature Center during your stay. Below is just a Very Small Sampling some of the eclectic and exciting events happening Memorial Day Weekend!
Not That Jewish – See this Off Broadway Hit Comedy written and performed by Emmy Award-winning writer, comedian, and actress Monica Piper. Exclusive Southern performances in Knoxville May 24 and May 26 at the Historic Bijou Theatre. You won’t see it anywhere else in the southern region this year!
Historic Ramsey House – Tour this 1797 home and watch a vintage baseball game. Ramsey House was built in 1797 by Knoxville’s first builder, Thomas Hope, for Francis Alexander Ramsey. The home is constructed of Tennessee pink marble and blue limestone. It was known at that time as the finest home in Tennessee. The structure is significant for its original interior and exterior architectural features and its period decorative art collection.
Join the fun while experiencing America’s game as it was played in 1864. This free public event is enjoying its 5th season and Historic Ramsey House is proud to be a part of this historic reenactment. The players play by 1864 rules, wear period uniforms and our local Knoxville teams bear the names of actual teams that existed in Knoxville during that time.
Carmon Sense Productions: The 5th Woman 2019 – Choreopoetry performed The 5th Woman is a collective of poets who write to radicalize the souls of women in all of their expressions and forms. The name comes from Nina Simone’s, The Four Women. The fifth woman was to be named Poetry. She is, she loves, she hurts, she laughs, and she inspires. She represents all women. Poetry creates space for every woman to be heard. http://the5thWoman2019.eventbee.com
