Event Details

Mabry-Hazen House is hosting an old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration on Monday, July 4th, 2022 from 5-10pm!

Gather with us to celebrate Independence Day, the Declaration of Independence, and community. Enjoy great views, good food and beer, live music, fun games, great company and tours of the 1858 house. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and spread out on our 7 acres of greenspace near downtown and right off I-40.

Our event recalls the spirit of 19th century Independence Day celebrations when communities gathered for patriotic revelry and enjoyment. Overlooking downtown Knoxville to the west and the Great Smoky Mountains to south, historic Mabry's Hill enjoys a spectacular view of the fireworks presented by the City of Knoxville and revelers around the city and county. Take it easy with this laid-back celebration. It is the perfect time to come chill on the hill! Take in the surrounding natural beauty and history. Savor food from Dia De Foods and other food trucks. Quench your thirst with beverages from Xul Beer Co. and other local breweries.

We'll also have several activities for kids and the young at heart including sack races, watermelon seed spitting contests, three-legged races, bocce, croquet, corn hole, and much more. Tinca Tinca will bring their retro-futuristic indie-rock and electronic sound for attendees to groove and enjoy. We'll have a reading of the Declaration of Independence. Purchase tickets to join in a cake walk and possibly take home a delicious cake from a local bakery! Trotta Montgomery Realty Company will be back with Biscuit the pony! And the historic house museum will open for self-guided tours.

Tickets for adults (16+) are $15 ( includes two drink tickets), children (ages 5-15) are $5, members of Mabry-Hazen House are $10, and children under 5 are free. If you are a member and do not receive a discount code in your email, please let us know! All proceeds benefit our educational and preservation missions!

Event will occur rain or shine.

Q: How well can you see fireworks?

A: Mabry’s Hill is the highest hill north of the Tennessee River. It offers a spectacular view of Knoxville and Knox County. The main reason the hilltop was occupied by both armies during the Civil War was it gave such a commanding view of the downtown. From the west side of the property, you will have an excellent view of downtown Knoxville and Gay Street Bridge where the city sets off their firework show. While we typically have a great view every year, we cannot control the weather or which way the wind blows.

Q: Do I need to bring a chair?

A: Yes. We will provide some tables and chairs, but guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. We also line chairs up on the western edge of the property specifically for viewing the fireworks. The central lawn is laid out for eating and enjoying the live music. Mabry’s Hill consists of 7 acres of land, so we have plenty of room for everyone!

A: Yes. You are welcome to bring a cooler and your own food. Food trucks will be on site and have favorite holiday foods available purchase. Part of the proceeds benefit Mabry-Hazen House.
