About 44 vendors registered for RAGBRAI permits in Knoxville next month. That’s according to Knoxville Assistant City Manager Dylan Feik. Feik says that around half of those are local vendors. He says that those local businesses and non-profits will receive preference on location choices versus those coming from out-of-town. He says they’ll be planning site locations for the next week or two and will contact vendors as they complete the process.
