Knoxville Convention Center
701 Henley Street
Knoxville, TN 37902
A modern architectural masterpiece, the Convention Center lies within the heart of Knoxville and is a stunning venue for both indoor and outdoor weddings. Built from Tennessee marble in 2002, the complex was designed to compliment downtown Knoxville and the surrounding natural colors of the World’s Fair Park and nearby Smoky Mountains.
Outside, various plazas accommodate intimate and mid-sized wedding ceremonies while delivering spectacular views of the surroundings. All four façades of the Convention Center face a unique and iconic vista. To the north and east, guests enjoy various views of Knoxville’s historic downtown district. To the south, Park Plaza Terrace creates a perfect photographic opportunity with aesthetic cascading waterfalls and fountains. To the west, guests soak up the beauty of Knoxville’s World’s Fair Park, Amphitheater, and historic Sunsphere.
Inside, an elegant ballroom is fully customized to fit wedding parties from 16 to 1,600 guests. Around each guest table, tasteful colored sashes embrace white linen chairs. Exquisite china and stemware encircle sophisticated centerpieces and create a romantic atmosphere.
Renowned for its gourmet catering, Knoxville’s Convention Center retains an executive chef to help the happy couple design the perfect menu. On the special day, a highly trained wait staff works to ensure every guest thoroughly enjoys the culinary experience as much as the wedding ceremony. Ample parking and nearby hotels provide convenient accommodation for guests from in and out of town.
