Knoxville Veterans Day Parade – 2023

November 10, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm EST

Smoky Mountain Model A Club will participate once again in the annual Veterans Day Parade along Gay Street, Knoxville, TN.

Bring a 5×7 index card with the #8 on it and tape it on the bottom L-side front window.
This will let the parade marshalls know which group we’re in and where they will stage us.
[November 10th, Friday is our annual Veterans’ Day Parade event. This year it is not on the normal day, the 11th.]
We will meet at 8:45 a.m. at the Kroger shopping center at the corner of Woodland Ave. and Broadway.

We’ll gather there for about 20-30 minutes and sip some cocoa, have donuts, cookies, etc., and mingle till we have all who are coming.  Because of the new staging area, I would like to depart no later than 9:15 a.m.

RSVP to me at the above email address or text me at (865) 805-9945 if you are joining us.

We’ll leave as a group to caravan over to the new staging area this year which is on Sevier Ave near the Gay Street bridge. They want us to arrive as a group, not all spread out.  We may pull over a few times to get everybody back together because of traffic and traffic lights.
Bring these directions along just in case you get separated. 
The new route from the Broad Shopping Center is: 
Exit the lot south onto Broadway. 
Almost immediately bear right onto the Hall of Fame Drive exit.
Go south on Hall of Fame Drive for 1.7 miles.
Turn left at the 4th traffic light onto E. Summit Hill Drive.
Go east for 0.5 miles and bear right onto E. Hill Ave.
Continue south on E. Hill Ave. to turn left onto the James White Parkway ramp.
The JWP will take us over the bridge and take the exit to Anita/Sevier Ave.
We’ll continue west on Sevier Ave till we find our staging spot.  Since we are #8 I think we will be close to the Gay Street Bridge.
This is as new a routine for them as it will be for us. This has not been done at this location before…. so bring plenty of patience.

Please note: The event location/address shown on this event listing page is our meeting point location, NOT the location of the parade itself.

Come out and enjoy the day with us! Bring family and friends to help celebrate and thank our veterans!
