Labor Day is almost here, and with it is the perfect time to sit back and relax with the family. Looking for something specific to do during the weekend? Take a look at some of our Labor Day Weekend events for 2016 in Knoxville TN!
Are you a big fan of taking your Toyota Tacoma or Tundra off-roading? You’re not alone — and you might be interested in the Appalachian Toyota Roundup at Windrock Park, near Knoxville TN. This event is held annually on Labor Day weekend at Windrock Park, which is the world’s largest privately owned OHV (off highway vehicles) area. The event will take place from Thursday, Sept. 1 through Sunday, Sept. 4. All skill levels are welcome, and the Appalachian Toyota Roundup is a family-friendly event.
Will there be a Boomsday in 2016?
Boomsday has always been a blast (pardon the pun) but unfortunately we won’t be seeing it in 2016. Knoxville’s annual Labor Day firework show held its final event last year, and while this is sad, it does also leave room for opportunity. There are plenty of fun things going on in the area, and maybe this will give you the chance to discover something new!
Hal Canfield Memorial Milefest
One of the best things about the Hal Canfield Memorial Milefest is how inclusive it is. Sure, anyone can sign up to do longer races like a 5K, but we appreciate the shorter course that this race offers, meaning far more people are able to participate. The Hal Canfield Memorial Milefest is held every Labor Day Weekend, and will take place on Saturday, Sept. 3 this year. You can find more info here.
Go on a Knoxville Food Tour or shop at the Farmers Market
We’re ok with any opportunity available to attend a Food Tour in Knoxville, which offers a mix of food, history and fun! If trying some of the best food and drink in Knoxville sounds like a great way to spend your Labor Day weekend, then you can find more info here. If you’d rather stay home and do the cooking yourself, then we also recommend going to see one of the area Farmers Markets to pick up some supplies. The New Harvest Park Farmers Market is open the Thursday before Labor Day, while the Market Square Farmers Market will take place on the Saturday before.
