Rhythm-N-Blooms expecting a huge crowd in downtown Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) It's another year for the Rhythm-N-Blooms art festival in downtown Knoxville, and with more than 90 artists scheduled to perform, there is no shortage of things to do while walking through the streets.

From Jazz to Indie, there is music for every ear at the weekend festival in the Old City.

Hundreds are filling the streets, from Barley's Taproom and all along Jackson Street past Gay Street, music is filling the air everywhere you walk.

"It's a great crowd. A lot of people have smiles on their faces," downtown resident Kirby Smith said.

Plenty of venues have beer along with their live music, which is drawing people from across the city to downtown.

"It's having a good time," south Knoxville resident Adam Sloan explained. "Everybody kind of meeting each other, seeing old friends. Just have a couple beers and listen to some live music."

It's even bringing in visitors from other cities, like Karen Terrell and Ashley Mennel.

"I absolutely love it here. I would move here in a heartbeat," Mennel said.

"It's a lot more compact than Indianapolis...there's a lot of things in a very compact area where you can walk around a do a lot of things," Terrell said.

Rhythm-N-Blooms also offers activities for the entire family. There is also a rock climbing wall and workshops with musicians throughout the weekend.
