We want you to stay safe! If you plan to take advantage of multiple samplings at Brewers Jam, you definitely want to have a designated driver.

Each year, the Knoxville Brewers Jam sells a Jam Hotel Package that includes 2 tickets and a hotel room. These are currently sold out for this year, but we still recommend grabbing a hotel room near World’s Fair Park or close to downtown Knoxville.

Stop by your hotel room before the event, then take an Uber or taxi to World’s Fair Park. Use the same service to return to your hotel later in the day. There will be Ubers available in and around downtown Knoxville at the time of this event.
