The Candoro Marble Building
Where Your Special Occasion
Becomes Part of Knoxville History

The Candoro Marble Building is not booking events after June 2015 due to restoration. 2,000 sq. ft. and includes a kitchen. The attached carriage house provides an additional 800 sq. ft. and is especially good for live music due to its pleasant acoustics. One acre of flat grassy lawn lined with Italian cypress trees is another space into which an even can spill and is perfect for tent set-up.

The entire site rents for only $75 per hour or $500 per day. Generally, for a wedding or dinner, it takes approx. 4 hours in order to have time available for set up, photos, breakdown, and clean-up. There is a $100.00 deposit which is refundable if the building is left as it was found. The deposit is refundable if the event is cancelled within 30 days of the scheduled day. If you want to have the building cleaned after your event, the cleaning fee is $100. 50 chairs and tables are available for use. Other furnishings may be brought in through the side entrance only with special care, so as not to scratch the marble floors.

The Candoro Marble Building is managed by The Candoro Arts and Heritage Center, a 501(c) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the Candoro Marble Building. All proceeds collected from rental go toward the restoration, care, and programs to benefit the surrounding neighborhood. Thank you for supporting our work.
