Knoxville City Hackathon

Join us for a weekend of civic-minded innovation and collaboration virtually to benefit our beloved city of Knoxville


The Knoxville City Hackathon is coming back this summer for its 2nd edition, July 18th - 19th for a virtual rendition of civic-minded innovation and collaboration for our beloved city of Knoxville.

Hack on the Scruffy City

During 28 caffeine-filled, sleepless hours, members from the Greater Knoxville community will brainstorm, build, break, test, and deploy whatever they can imagine, for the chance to win amazing prizes totaling over $6,400. There will also be plenty of time to interact with professional mentors and engineers, meet recruiters, and listen to great tech talks and tutorials from sponsors.


Thank you to our great sponsors for supporting our effort this year.
