What is Gotta Know Knoxville?


Gotta Know Knoxville (GKK) is a program put on by Visit Knoxville and takes place once a month, from 12pm-4:00pm, for those who are interested in knowing more about Knoxville! Our hope is that they then share their knowledge with visitors they come in contact with, as well as locals who may be not realize all their hometown has to offer! So be a tourist in your own hometown for a few hours!

GKK begins with an informative classroom presentation (lunch included), a walking tour with stops into some local businesses, and a bus tour of a few of Knoxville’s attractions. This is a fun way to learn more about your city and all of the great things it has to offer!


Please RSVP ASAP, but no later than Friday, June 13 by email to jimjohnson1949@att.net
