About Us

The South Knoxville Alliance is composed of businesses and organizations within the 37920 zip code - South Knoxville, South of the River.

We have joined as active business and civic leaders to strengthen the area by promoting our many assets to fellow Knoxvillians, visitors and guests. Located just across the Tennessee River from downtown, South Knoxville is one of Knoxville’s most unique districts - with various and sundry boutiques, a plethora of locally owned and operated eateries, and home of the nationally acclaimed Urban Wilderness.

We will promote South Knoxville through marketing, events and festivals. Check back often for our latest news.
