Kingston Springs has several annual events in the parks each year. Namely:

Community Yard Sale - Residents participate in an area yard sale throughout Kingston Springs and in surrounding Cheathm County. A map of yard sale locations is distributed electronically and in paper form to local businesses the Thursday before the event. The Community Yard Sale is held annually on the third Saturday of May.

Catfish Rodeo – A catfish rodeo is held at L.L. Burns Park in conjunction with the TWRA Free Fishing Weekend, in early June each year. The pond is stocked with fish and an early morning of exciting fishing always ensues. The event is for children ages 4-12, is free of charge, and features several prizes and trophies.

Easter Egg Hunt – Thousands of eggs are hidden in City Park for this event, held on the Saturday one week before Easter. Children are divided into age groups for hunting eggs, and several prizes are awarded. The event is free to attend, but you need to bring your own basket. Don’t be late! Hunting starts promptly at 10:00 a.m. and eggs go quickly.

Art in the Park – Kingston Springs’ largest annual event is a competition and show for artists 16 years and older. The event is an excellent opportunity to view local talent and to purchase a piece of masterpiece from an area artisan. Art in the Park is held the first Saturday in October at L.L.
