The fun kicks off at 11:30 a.m. today for the thirty-fourth annual Autumn in Knoxville Fall Festival at the TRECS complex. Each year, thousands of Knoxville-area faculty and staff attend this employee appreciation event for fun, food, and giveaways.
This year’s event will focus on little-known perks and benefits available to UT employees. The event ends at 3:00 p.m.
The fall festival brings together employees from all corners of the Knoxville area and relies on the help of many on- and off-campus volunteers. Many local companies have contributed door prizes, games, and more to this year’s festival. The Office of Finance and Administration is providing a catered lunch, with many university groups and organizations chipping in for prizes and entertainment. One of the most popular events of the festival each year is bingo, which again will feature celebrity callers from around campus and some great prizes.
