Gilman Event Hall is a wedding venue in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee. The building was formerly the home of Gilman Paint and Varnish Company. Today, the venue's lovingly updated factory-style design, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed brick walls, and hardwood floors, celebrates its industrial roots. Gilman has always stood for quality, affordability, and putting the customer first, and the Gilman Event Hall team is proud to maintain those same high standards. Like the couples they serve, the Gilman team cherishes the roads they've taken and the people who have shaped them even as they look forward to the future. The Gilman team can't wait to make your wedding celebration an event to remember.
