We are past the 4th, but July still has much to offer with the best of summer’s harvest, nature trails, dining on the Riverwalk, a Red Skelton performance, parade and festival fun, the Knox County Fair featuring the Xtreme Roughstock Rodeo, tractor pulls, amazing 4H exhibits, great food and more!
Did someone say sweet corn? Visit your favorite vendor at the Farmer’s Market for a dozen ears and enjoy delicious corn on the cob from one of the best crop years that Knox County has seen. Our award-winning melons are coming into season, and you won’t want to leave without picking up a juicy and refreshing cantaloupe or watermelon! The market offers a wonderful selection of produce from summer’s harvest and is open on Saturday from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm and Wednesday, 4:00 pm – 7:30 pm.
Escape to the woods at Ouabache Trails Park and learn more about the “Web of Life” during the Second Sunday Nature Walk. The guided walk offers a new theme every month.
Who wants to cook after the weekend? Come down to the Riverwalk and visit with friends, sample from your favorite food trucks, and enjoy live music for an evening of al fresco dining!
