World's Fair Park, Knoxville Reviews

  • The World's Fair Park is the jewel of Knoxville. 4th of July celebration held there annually. Various shows and music within easy walking distance of each other. Plenty of food and drink. Lots of parking with short walk to the park. Einstein the parrot did his human vocalizations. Difficult to hear her well (yes, female) due to surrounding noises but fun to watch. Highlight of the evening of course was the Knoxville symphony. They knocked it out of the park (pardon the pun) with their performance. Evening topped off with fireworks.

  • Great location and history. A pride of the city where a glorious past initiated a continuum of celebration for the present and the future. Besides special events, it's a nice place for citizens and tourists to relax, hangout, and entertain.

  • Great place to take kids, they had so much fun playing with the water fountains. We would highly recommend and cannot wait to visit Knoxville again

  • This was a really great time for us whom don't like in TN. It was free for the whole family. We would recomend this place especially if your in the area. So close to market square another of our favorite spots

  • Not a ton to do, but quite pretty to see! I, for one, LOVED the SunSphere. I mean, it's just 80's goodness!
