Keep Knoxville Beautiful Hosts Unique Fundraiser at Oakes Farm
Rocky Top Pickin'September 18, 2012 - Keep Knoxville Beautiful isn't putting on any ordinary fundraiser. This year, the local organization is hosting the Rocky Top Pickin' Party, a night of great music and fun set in the rustic outdoors of Oakes Farm in Corryton, TN on September 28, 2012.

The event will feature live entertainment from string band Pistol Creek Catch of the Day, along with a Pickin' Party. Musicians and singers will perform mini-concerts throughout the night. Guests are invited to bring an instrument and participate in the Pickin' Party; however, instruments are not required to enjoy the festivities.

"If you are looking for a fun, family friendly night under the full moon, come on over to Oakes Farm and enjoy the music and community. We want people to come out and enjoy an evening filled with music, good food, and fun at this waste-free event," said Allison Teeters, Executive Director of Keep Knoxville Beautiful.
