What: Cancelled: Knoxville SOUP
When: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 - 6:00pm
Where: Dara's Garden - 2637 Maryville Pike

Due to recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, we have unfortunately cancelled our spring 2020 SOUP event. Our thoughts are with each of you as we work to practice safe social distancing and precautionary methods.

Thanks for your continued support.


Knoxville SOUP is an exciting community-focused project and is open to all of Knoxville. It’s a project Celebrating and Supporting Creative Projects in Knoxville.

Prior to dinner, we showcase proposals highlighting projects that are going on in our city. During dinner, attendees discuss the projects and cast their vote for the project they would like to fund with the proceeds from the door.

Proposals can be for anything that will benefit the community or society in general. Past winning projects have improved greenways and nature trails, provided exercise equipment for seniors, funded back to school drives, supported other charitable endeavors and even launched a small business with a social focus. There are no hard and fast rules to what a proposal should be, only that someone envisions it, asks for it and the diners vote for it.

The most recent Knoxville SOUP, held in October, raised money for South Knoxville Elementary School Scientists in the Playground project.

Come and support the excellent community projects that are being pitched. $5 gets you soup, salad and a vote!!
