Celebrating Knoxville's Most Beautiful Spaces

Since 1979, Keep Knoxville Beautiful has presented Orchids Beautification Awards to Knoxville and Knox County buildings, public art, and outdoor spaces that beautify and elevate the local landscape. In addition to traditional categories such as New Architecture, Redesign/Reuse, Outdoor Space, and Public Art, Keep Knoxville Beautiful will highlight the accomplishments and sustainable efforts of our valuable volunteers, community partners, and green organizations and businesses.


Join us this year to celebrate the people who are beautifying our dynamic city. Cocktail hour, dinner, and live music. Doors open at 5:30, and the dinner begins at 7 pm sharp.
