Knox Pride Java Tour

Come out and support Knox Pride with our First Annual Knox Pride Java Tour. As we continue to grow, we are expanding our fundraising and community events throughout the year. 

We are partnering with local coffee houses and cafes to bring you Knoxville's First Java Tour! 

Passports are $15 per person when purchased online (Here) up to 24 hours before day of the event (You can still purchase passports for $20 at the check in location the day of the event) First 200 passports purchased gets a free Knox Pride Java Tour coffee mug. Passports include a map of participating coffee shops and cafes, suggested route and other goodies that will be updated as we get closer to the event! Each passport holder can go into the participating coffee shops and sample a free brew. Each coffee shop will stamp your passport and when it is complete, come back to the location where passports were picked up for a prize! 

The event runs both Saturday and Sunday from 7 am to 2 pm and you can start and stop at your discretion. Passports can be used both Saturday and Sunday so it can be a weekend event for the truly caffeinated! So get your friends and family together and make a day (or weekend) of drinking great coffee, venturing through downtown Knoxville and surrounding areas, and supporting the Knox Pride community. 

Join us for this fantastic event! Can't wait to spend our weekend with you and your loved ones.
