The Candoro Arts & Heritage Center Grounds serve as a unique and affordable wedding venue with plenty of space for indoor or outdoor events. The venue offers 2,000 square feet of space inclusive of kitchen facilities as well as an attached carriage house that 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 perfect for tent setup or open air celebrations is also included in the fee.

Venue Rental

Knoxville’s historic Candoro Marble building rents for $1350, is yours for the entire day and includes tables and chairs for up to 100 people. It is perfect for an event of 150 people or less.  A $150 deposit is required to book and will be used as a cleaning fee to maintain our historic building. This deposit is refundable if the event is cancelled within 30 days of the scheduled day. For weddings over 50 guests, you will be required to rent outdoor restrooms.

Once Candoro Arts & Heritage Center has received your $150 deposit and signed rental agreement at the mailing address below, your name will be added to the official calendar of Candoro Arts & Heritage Center.

Every wedding and event is required to carry an event insurance policy and provide Candoro Arts & Heritage Center with proof of your insurance. Event policies generally cost around one hundred dollars and can be purchased on the Event Helper website ( or added to a homeowners policy.

All Occasions Party Rentals is our preferred rental vendor, and can put up tents on either side of our property.

Note: Even though the name of the official structure is entitled “Candoro” with an “o” at the end of the name, the local vernacular carried through in the pronunciation “Candora,” thus the street name evolved into Candora with the letter “a” published at the end on local signage. This can be confusing on modern day mapping and location apps.
The Candoro Marble Building is managed by The Candoro Arts and Heritage Center, a 501(c)(3) 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.
