On May 1, 2021, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a car show at the Knoxville Expo Center, 5441 Clinton Highway, to raise money for the county Drug Abuse Resistance Education Program. D.A.R.E. is a highly effective evidence-based substance abuse program that teaches 5th grade students the consequences of drug use and how to make healthy choices, resolve conflicts and take charge of their life. It is KCSO’s goal to reach approximately 3,000 Knox County 5th graders each year about the consequences of drug use.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and include event t-shirts, goody bags, door prizes, live bluegrass and food trucks (Big O’s BBQ and Forks on the Road). Grumpy’s Plastic Model Car Club will also have a model car show. Several vendors will be there with a variety of merchandise and vendor space is still available.

Medic Mobile will also be on hand for their blood drive.

All proceeds to benefit the Knox County Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. Program
