Thanks to a partnership with Fort Sanders Regional Medical Facility, there is free parking nights (after 6 PM) and weekends in the surface parking lots at the corner of 19th Street and White Avenue. However, due to routine maintenance including resurfacing of these lots, the parking lots will be closed starting Friday evening, November 8th through Saturday, November 9th.
Please make plans to park in another location while this work is preformed.
Another free parking resource that is available to the public nights and weekends (excluding special events) is at UT's Terrace Avenue Garage.

2019 University of Tennessee Knoxville's Homecoming is right around the corner!The University of Tennessee's Homecoming is next week and the Cumberland Avenue Merchants Association (CAMA) and the City of Knoxville have been working in partnership with the University for a fun-filled parade. This year's theme is "Lighting the Way" taken from the 225th Celebration of the University of Tennessee. The parade takes place Friday, November 1, at Circle Park. The parade will begin at 4 PM. Knoxville Police Department and Public Service will close Cumberland to through traffic between 22nd Street and James Agee starting at 3:30 PM and lasting until 5:00 PM.
The parade showcases student organization floats, community vehicles, and includes the eighth annual Little Vol Walk. The Parade Emcee will be stationed at the intersection of Pedestrian Walkway and Volunteer Blvd. The emcee will be Dr. Jill Zambito, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Student Life. More information here.
By walking in the parade CAMA members will be helping to "shine the light" - handing out more than $1,000.00 worth of prizes to Parade Attendees selected at random along the route. Merchants have collected coupons, gift cards, t-shirts, and other swag from their businesses. You could be a lucky winner just by showing up to enjoy the parade!
Keep in mind that there is more to do than just the parade! For a full list of events please visit here.
Also happening is the celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Pride of the Southland Marching Band - Congratulations!
As always, thanks for your interest in everything involving Cumberland Avenue. Have a safe and fun-filled weekend. Go Vols!

Helping Light the WayThe City of Knoxville, in support of the University of Tennessee and the University's celebration of 225 years, will be installing some new banners along Cumberland Avenue for the month of October and ending after Homecoming weekend (November 2).
To minimize disruption to traffic flow along the street, Traffic Engineering crews will install the banners from 4-5 AM on Tuesday or Wednesday, September 24 or 25, weather dependent. Traffic during this time can use the side streets to access White or Lake Avenues and continue on their way. Only one lane of traffic will be blocked at one time. Thanks to the team in Traffic Engineering for helping with this celebration!
