The Parks and Recreation Department is involved in several events hosted/sponsored by the City:

Concerts in the Park

The Knoxville Community Band gives musicians of all experience levels the opportunity to perform in various concerts, including an outdoor concert series during the summer and other festivals and City events throughout the year. 

Doggie Dip Day (September)
Each year, the City hosts an annual "Doggie Dip" at the outdoor Inskip Swimming Pool at 4204 Bruhin Road. The exclusive dog-only swim party happens as the City is wrapping up the summer swimming season. Dog owners are encouraged to bring their furry friends out for a refreshing dip and afternoon of socializing.

Teen Step Show (March)
Every year teams from local schools, the state of Tennessee and surrounding states compete to see who has the most creative step routine. Awards and prizes are presented to the top three teams. In 2019, we will also host a Teen Dance Competition in conjunction with the Teen Step Show.
