The city of Knoxville will host a Neighborhood Resource Fair from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday, August 12, 2023, at the Jacob Building at Chilhowee Park, 401 Lakeside Street. It is open to all.
This event is a partial replacement for the Neighborhood Conference, a free, community-wide event produced by the Office of Neighborhood Empowerment between 2013 and 2022.
Debbie Sharp, neighborhood department coordinator, said the Neighborhood Conference had become so huge and difficult for an office of two FT, one PT staff, the event was split into two events.
Neighborhood awards will be given in the spring at an awards dinner; the Resource Fair will be the booth section of the former event.
“Throughout the year, we will be doing workshops to replace the breakout sessions.”
Meet candidates running for local office. Free lunch for registered attendees.”
Admission is free, but preregistration is requested at this link.
The Muse Knoxville and Zoo Knoxville will provide demonstrations and family-friendly activities. And the Candidates’ Corner will host candidates running for city mayor, city council at-large seats, and municipal judge.
