NEW THIS YEAR!
· Two members of the Knoxville Pipes and Drum Corps will open the festival by parading from the Farmers Market into the square at 8 a.m., followed by music all day under the big tent.
· A hand-painted children’s merry-go-round, bicycle powered by Dan Arp will be offered as well as a new planting activity for children, sponsored by Fox Brothers Ace Hardware.
· Educational presentations for adults will be offered between Dean’s Restaurant and The Ferrell Shop on the west side of the square.
· Food vendors are all located in one row, so you can see what your choices are. Seating is under the big tent.
"The Lavender Festival is a festive time for Jackson Square! It is always a treat to find something unusual to take home with you. It's a wonderful event for our community."
