The next Rossini Festival International Street Fair will be Saturday, April 13, 2019. This annual gift to our community 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 several 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 Knoxville  into a European-style pedestrian street mall appropriate for the entire family.  The Rossini Festival has entertained over 500,000 people from Knox County and the surrounding region in its first 17 years. As the Street Fair is offered free to the community, it is largely dependent upon sponsor support for its funding.
