Rhythm N' Blooms Bring Music to Downtown
View Music Schedule
April 3, 2014 - Knoxville showcases its eclectic musical history with the Dogwood Arts Rhythm N' Blooms festival, an American Roots three-day music event running from Friday, April 4, through Sunday, April 6.

Rhythm N' Blooms FestRhythm N' Blooms spotlights songwriters and a wide variety of musical performances running the gamut from jazz to indie to bluegrass -- and everything in between.

This year, the festival will be set on Jackson Avenue on Friday and Saturday -- treating festival goers to a unique and growing part of downtown Knoxville.

The festival, which features hundreds of artists, vendors, volunteers, sponsors and logistical supporters, aims to promote and celebrate the Knoxville region's arts, culture and natural beauty -- not only to city residents, but also to visitors.

"We're thrilled to be bringing Rhythm N' Blooms to the urban artistic cityscape of the ever-growing Jackson Avenue on Friday and Saturday," said Dogwood Arts Marketing Manager Erin Slocum.

"We love seeing festival goers fall in love with their favorite performers and many previously unknown. In addition to the 90-plus musical performances over the course of the weekend, we'll have spoken word jams, entertainment by buskers, a climbing wall and slack lines courtesy of River Sports Outfitters, a Sharpie Art Door Slam, and the Knox County Schools Art Design Contest and Auction."
