Every spring, visitors flock to this annual art and heritage festival known to locals as “VESTIVAL.” Proceeds from the event go toward the care and restoration of the historic marble building and grounds. Visit the VESTIVAL Facebook Page. South Knoxville residents are unique, and VESTIVAL sets itself apart as “not your typical event.” One word describes VESTIVAL and that word is “unique.” Families with children really appreciate the imaginative children’s activities. Foodies love the fresh and local food offerings. The music? Outstanding. Typically, about a dozen bands play throughout the day on 3 stages. From interactive art project booths to quality crafts for sale, it is a celebration enjoyed by all generations. What makes VESTIVAL so special? VESTIVAL 2012 featured the following forms of entertainment: Mothers Day Brunch, One World Circus (with a circus workshop afterward), Cakewalks, Hoopers, Dancers, Acrobatic Dancers, Art Exhibits, and even a Maypole Dance! The event is free, but a $5 donation is greatly appreciated. Participation in this annual fundraising event keeps Candoro Marble Company growing and helps South Knoxville thrive. The beautiful main building is on the National Register of Historic Places. It serves as a main hub for the Vestal Community. VESTIVAL is special time of year when South Knoxville focuses on how it will shape itself — its design, its future. VESTIVAL is all about community empowerment. This event reflects the pride of South Knoxvillians who enjoy gathering at their very own historic site and participating in something beautiful. View scenes in the photo gallery.
