On Tuesday, June 1st, 2021, the groundbreaking ceremony for Knoxville's newest event center took place.
River Breeze Event Center plans to host everything from live music events to weddings. Located just along the Holston River, River Breeze sits on 7.5 acres of land with reserved seating for up to 3,000 people and lawn space capacity of up to 6,500 people.
The first of its kind in the Knoxville community, River Breeze plans to host anywhere from 60 to 80 shows per year on the outdoor property.
Other features of the property will include parking for up to 500 cars on-site and 3,700 cars off-site, permanent restrooms, a permanent beer garden, multiple full-service bars, and 4 food truck parking pads.
A steel stage with a 40-by-40 foot cement base will be constructed on the property to host the live music acts and performers.
River Breeze is set to open the property to the public in the Spring of 2022.
