about us

Knoxville’s new favorite outdoor concert and event venue!

Located just minutes from Downtown (6110 Asheville Hwy. Knoxville), the River Breeze site first opened to the public in 1950, operating as the city’s beloved Drive-In Movie Theater for over 30 years before shuttering its doors in 1980. Today, the 7+ acre property stretching along the Holston River has been re-imagined as a state-of-the art outdoor venue. 

Born from and fostered by Knoxville natives and business owners, in collaboration with regional and national live event specialists, River Breeze’s ethos is to host exceptional event experiences that seamlessly blend Knoxville, Tennessee’s unique local heritage and hospitality with world-class appeal. Event attendees, music fans, local residents, visitors to Knoxville—you are the River Breeze community. This is your space.

River Breeze Event Center hosts top notch local, national, and international concerts and entertainment events—almost year-round. Look for diverse concert bookings & event programming, delicious food & beverage offerings, and additional venue experiences unique to Knoxville (river float, anyone?). 

Bring a friend, grab a blanket or chair, and catch the free shuttle to River Breeze…see you there!
