A Day Packed with Patriotic Fun

Local Food vendors will be on both the Performance Lawn and Festival Lawn to help keep you sustained throughout the day. For the artistically inclined, local artisans will showcase their crafts, providing not only a feast for the eyes but also the perfect opportunity to pick up a unique souvenir. 

Star-Spangled Entertainment

This year’s festival entertainment features a mix of local bands and nationally recognized musical artists performing on multiple stages. On the Festival Lawn stage, Knox Vegas DJs will spin tunes 5:00-6:00 p.m., and Bary Jolly will perform Jimmy Buffet’s greatest hits from 6:00-7:45 p.m. On the Performance Lawn stage, Mike Snodgrass Band will play 6:00-7:45 p.m. In the Tennessee Amphitheatre, the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra will perform its 40th annual Lawson Family Foundation Independence Day Concert at 8:00 p.m. (video of the KSO's performance will be broadcast on large screens at the Performance and Festival lawns), providing the perfect soundtrack for the evening with patriotic anthems and stirring classics as a lead-up to the fireworks extravaganza.

 

The Main Event: Fireworks Extravaganza

The highlight of the Festival on the 4th is undoubtedly the spectacular fireworks display. Scheduled to commence at 9:45 PM, the sky above World's Fair Park will illuminate with vibrant colors and impressive pyrotechnics, choreographed to a mix of patriotic music and contemporary hits. This breathtaking display is visible from many parts of the city, but the best view is from the spacious lawns of World’s Fair Park.
