Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours: COVID-19 Program

  • May 1, 2020 — December 31, 2021

Category: Festivals & special events and History & heritage

Since 2010, Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours have created the highest level of enjoyment. With the hard times we are facing as a country, we feel that entertainment IS 100% essential. Getting out of the house, enjoying the outdoors with loved-ones is extremely beneficial to personal health.
With this being said, we have decided to adjust our Tours operation so we can offer service to the public, while also maintaining social distancing requirement.
Public Tours are postponed till social distancing requirements are lifted. (RESCHEDULES will be available once social distancing requirements are lifted.)
Private Tours will be offered for “Households” and social circles. (We have decided to offer these events to individuals who spend time in close proximity of each other.) This is a great solution for slowing the spread of the virus while also offering activities that can bring enjoyment to families in the community.
