First Annual Trick or Treat in Tennessee’s Cherokee Caverns
Located near Knoxville, Cherokee Caverns first opened in 1929 and was operated successfully for 51 years until a fire in 1980 destroyed the restaurant over the entrance and left the cave open to vandals.
This first annual event replaces The Haunted Cave, an event that which was started more than 20 years ago as part of a volunteer project to protect the caverns. It helps raise the necessary funds to cover insurance, utilities, and maintenance of the cave.
Running on the weekend of October 19th and 20th and then again from October 25th until the 31st, the event runs from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm each night.
Kids should wear their Halloween costumes and bring treat bags so they carry their loot.
Admission is $7.00 per person for everyone aged 2 & older.
For those that can’t make it this Halloween, the cave is also opened to the public for one day about once every three months and is also available for private group tours.
