2017Rossini_Mercury16x9Knoxville Opera’s 2017 Rossini Festival International Street Fair
Downtown Knoxville: 10 am – 9 pm
Check out the official guide to the Street Fair in the print version of the Knoxville Mercury this week, along with previews of next week’s production of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Knoxville Opera’s annual Rossini Festival International Street Fair, now in it’s 16th year, has been designated a “legacy event” by Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and serves as a celebration of the performing arts.  The public enjoys 11 consecutive hours of live entertainment on five outdoor stages (opera, jazz, ethnic music, gospel, modern and ethnic dance, ballet, vocal and instrumental ensembles) and the YMCA FunZone while shopping at exhibits of over 100 prominent Artisans and enjoying cuisine from dozens of food vendors.  This unique event transforms downtown Gay Street, Market Square, and the adjoining streets into a European-style pedestrian street mall appropriate for the entire family.
