About Penny 4 Arts Program

The Arts & Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville, in cooperation with the local arts community, is proud to announce its fourth year of Penny4Arts, a program designed to meet the local arts community’s long-term goal of serving and educating East Tennessee's children. Penny4Arts provides every child in Knox and surrounding counties, including home-schooled and private-schooled students, an opportunity to attend local arts and culture events/activities by nearly 30 organizations at the maximum cost of ONE PENNY (or FREE!) when accompanied by an adult during the 2015-2016 academic school year. Organizations whose admission is regularly free are offering special programs or gifts for attending Knox County students.

The following guidelines apply to EVERY Penny Performance event:
  • Open to Knox and surrounding County residents (only a few exceptions).
  • All children ages 5-15 must be accompanied by a paying adult (age 18 and older) in a ratio not to exceed three children per one adult.
  • Holiday concerts excluded.
  • Proof of Knox and surrounding County residency (driver's license) may be required for each adult accompanying children ages 5-15.
  • Students ages 16-18 must show proof of Knox and surrounding County residency.
  • At least one in a group of up to four students ages 16-18 must purchase a regular adult admission/ticket (if applicable) for the group to be able to participate in Penny Performances.
Concerts, plays, dance performances, historic home tours, museums, fairs, festivals, arts workshops, radio broadcasts, movies, and more are part of Penny Performances! Sign up for notices at
