What Is Going On In This Weekend Chattanooga

Happy Friday! The sun is shining, the air is crisp and there is a lot of fun to be had in Chattanooga this weekend. We have had a very damp winter with mild temperatures, so the brief cold snap is welcome. This weekend is a good weekend to get out and enjoy Chattanooga it all its winter glory. Here are your best bets.


Lookout Wild Film Festival

This year is the 6th year of the Lookout Wild Film Festival which brings outdoor and conservation short films to the Chattanooga area and draws visitors from all over the southeast for the weekend. Since Chattanooga is an epicenter of outdoor recreation including climbing, hiking, white water, cycling and flat water paddle, it makes sense the festival makes its home here. Films cover everything from hiking in Norway to women firefighters in California.  Thursday-Sunday, The Tivoli, Tickets can be purchased online and schedule of films and the “after party” acts are located here.

Cumberland Trail Guided Hike
Hiking in and around the Chattanooga area is truly some of the best and easiest to get to, thanks in part to the Chattanooga valley’s surrounding terrain. This Saturday, you can join in on the first hike of the  Cumberland Trail series, which is 9 short hikes, each 5-7 miles.  The single track trail is challenging, but definitely attainable. These guided hikes are a great way to learn more about the area, make new friends and explore the beautiful trails of the Cumberland Gap.  Cost is free, but space is limited in the shuttle vehicle. To register, call 423-643-6888 10-3pm.
