 What is Gotta Know Knoxville?

Gotta Know Knoxville (GKK) is a program put on by Visit Knoxville and takes place once a month, from 12:00 pm-5:00 pm, for those who are interested in knowing more about Knoxville! The goal is that participants then share their knowledge with visitors they meet that may have little to no knowledge of Knoxville, as well as locals who may 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 become an Ambassador for Knoxville!

We will meet at the Visit Knoxville building located at 301 S. Gay Street (Knoxville Visitor Center). Upon arrival, please go to the guest services desk and they will direct you to the location of the class. You may arrive as early as 11:00 am for networking, and our class will begin promptly at noon.

Please remember:

  • Casual clothing is fine, and comfortable shoes are suggested, as we will be walking around parts of downtown Knoxville for approximately 2 hours
  • The class will take place “rain or shine”!!

Limited Space is available so please register as early as possible. This meeting is longer than any of our other meetings but it is well worth taking the time to really learn about our great city with friends and colleagues. Your guests are welcome.

Please Register ASAP, but no later than Wednesday, April 19 by email to jimjohnson1949@att.net
