Secret City Festival

secret city festival

The Secret City Festival is held annually in June in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and draws over 20,000 attendees. Record crowds dance to the oldies and croon along to their favorite tunes of yesteryear

During daytime festival hours, crowds gather at the BMX Bicycle Stunt Show, where festival-goers are entertained with flips, jumps, slides, and all kinds of other bicycle stunts. Tennessee State Parks bring their eagle and owl for folks to have their photos made with, and Oscar the Robot flirts, teases, and wins over crowds with his charm and wit.

The World War II re-enactment is the largest multi-battle WWII event in the South. There are lots of antiques and collectibles vendors. The Children’s Festival area features a Euro-bungy, Inflatable Slide, Mule and Wagon Rides, Rock Climbing Wall, free Game Zone and more.

A new feature at the 5th Annual Secret City Festival is a juried arts show. This inaugural event, called TN Creates, features 40 of the area’s finest artisans including woodworkers, potters, soap makers, gourd artists, jewelers, printmakers, and much more.

The 5th Annual Secret City Festival was honored with the prestigious 2007 Festival of the Year Award at the Southeast Tourism Society’s (STS) Fall Meeting. This award, named the Shining Example Award, designates the Secret City Festival as the best festival in the Southeast United States with attendance up to 100,000.
