The 10th Annual Knoxville Brewfest will be held Saturday, August 1st, 2020 in the heart of downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. Session 1 will be from 12pm to 3pm and Session 2 will be from 5pm-8pm. Breweries, beer and enthusiasts from all over will gather for a Summer afternoon sampling fresh beers of all colors, styles and flavors.

There will also be a Tennessee Brewers' Party on Friday, July 31st from 6:30-11:00pm this year as a special addition for the 10th year and a fundraiser for Tailgating For A Cause & Cure Duchenne. 

Net proceeds of the Fest benefit CureDuchenne.


We are implementing new measures this year to comply with city and state guidelines pertaining to COVID-19. We will be spreading out the event and lowering capacity to ensure proper social distancing. We will also be using disposable cups for sampling to lower transmission points. There will be a sanitation team cleaning down surfaces and plenty of hand sanitizer will be available. We want to provide a safe atmosphere for our festival goers while providing the best beer festival experience possible. 

In the event that the festival is postponed, all tickets will be honored at the new date. If the event is cancelled, all tickets will be refunded.



This year, we are excited to return to the World’s Fair Park wrapping around the fountains and lake at the base of the Sunsphere and Tennessee Amphitheater. With plenty of space, seating and natural shade, you'll enjoy strolling along the water while sampling over 300 beers from Tennessee and beyond!
