Renaissance to host festival


Renaissance | Farragut will host its first festival of the year from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, May 8.

“The huge success of the farmers market was a sign for all of us that the community really wants and will support local family fun events,” R. Knick Myers, Myers Bros. Holdings, said.

“My family has always been about supporting the local people who support you,” he added.

The event will feature the Dixie Lee Farmer’s Market, which will be open from 9 a.m. to noon, as well as a demonstration by Tai Chi for Health and a concert by The Starboarders.

A children’s play area will feature carnival games, climbing wall, bounce house and inflatable slide.


Knox County Sheriff’s Office will have a helicopter and Rural Metro will have a fire truck on site.

In “Food Fest,” held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., local vendors will sell a variety of foods.

Attendees must purchase tickets to Food Fest. Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m.; only about 400 will be available. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to STAR.

Hardin Valley Academy also will have a silent auction to raise funds for the school’s athletic department.

Portions of Renaissance will be open only to pedestrian traffic.

“The east entrance to Renaissance | Farragut will be closed to vehicle traffic as well as the front parking lot. The west entrance will remain open,” Myers Bros. vice president of operations Darla Berdal said.

Parking will be available in the upper lots of Renaissance, as well as across Kingston Pike at First Farragut United Methodist Church.

“Off-duty officers will be on site to provide traffic control and a shuttle will be available compliments of Beaty Chevrolet for those who do not wish to walk over,” Berdal said.
