KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- This weekend’s Rhythm N’ Blooms festival is expected to draw nearly 20,000 concertgoers to downtown Knoxville over the next three days. New this year, the music festival has its own ice cream flavor.

The flavor, called “Dogwood,” is by Elaine Evans, owner of Knoxville-based Elaine’s Ice Cream, a bespoke ice cream business. Evans says the flavor combines pink grapefruit, rosemary and elderflower with a creamy vanilla dairy base.

“I call it ‘Dogwood’ because that word, that tree and its beautiful flowers stand for springtime itself here in East Tennessee,” Evans says.

Chyna Brackeen of Attack Monkey Productions says the ice cream is a great addition to the Rhythm N’ Blooms atmosphere.

“Rhythm N' Blooms combines live music with nature for a totally unique flavor,” Brackeen says. “[This adds] yet another dimension--literally, taste--to an increasingly rich and memorable live experience that you simply can’t get anywhere else.”

The ice cream will have limited availability tomorrow at a reception kicking off the weekend’s musical performances.
