Here’s what’s happening in the Chattanooga area this week.


The first day of fall arrives at 9:03 p.m. Thursday in the Northern Hemisphere, though a look around the landscape shows that the oaks and maples haven’t gotten the message yet. If you want a way to tell when the leaves will start to change, the 2022 fall foliage map published by gives the outlook for the entire United States. The interactive map plots the full progress for each region, county by county. In the Chattanooga area we will wait until the week of October 31st for the best leaf preview, a little earlier for higher elevations. A disclaimer says the map won’t be 100% accurate, but is meant to help travelers “better plan their trips to have the best opportunity to catch the max color each year.”
