A Chattanooga Family’s Guide to April 2024

Chattanooga April Family Events

Spring has officially arrived in the Scenic City, and with it comes a calendar full of events! Chattanooga’s trio of sports teams are back in action. Catch a Lookouts, Red Wolves, or CFC game as the nights grow warmer and longer. The Chattanooga Zoo has several upcoming events, as does Rock City and Lula Lake. The Chattanooga Market also opens for the season at the end of the month. The Tivoli Foundation has a stellar lineup of shows coming up in the warmer months, and Chattanooga Parks and Outdoors just released their 2024 spring and summer guide.

As the school year winds down and the days get a little busier, enjoy these beautiful days our city has to offer!
