About Sunsphere Events

Located in Knoxville, Tennessee, Sunsphere Events is an iconic wedding venue with plenty to offer. Built as a symbolic gesture during the 1982 World's Fair, this structure has now stood tall for decades. The venue measures a height of 266 feet, its hexagonal steel truss supporting the 75-foot golden glass sphere atop it. Inside, hosts and their guests can enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of Knoxville and the Smoky Mountains. Truly unforgettable, this location is both unique and easily accessible via parking at the nearby Locust Street garage.

Facilities and Capacity

Two floors within Sunsphere Events offer ample space for wedding hosts to hold their exciting occasion. The sixth floor is suitable for occasions hosting 180 seated guests, or 350 standing ones. It boasts three flat-screen televisions, computer-compatible hookups, a stereo, a microphone, a USB player, and a podium. WiFi is also accessible throughout. The eighth floor holds similar amenities, scaled down for smaller, cozier events. In total, it can accommodate 80 seated guests and 150 standing event-goers. From proposal to reception and beyond, Sunsphere Events is pleased to be the backdrop for it all.

Services Offered

While here, couples may avail of various services. These include a dedicated venue representative, table and chair rentals, audiovisual equipment use, and the provision of numerous event decor pieces. Should couples have a custom idea in mind, they are encouraged to discuss this with their venue representative to determine how their wishes might be accommodated. Those hosting a catered occasion that includes alcohol will have the opportunity to hire Sunsphere Event's preferred caterer, Rosa's Catering. Rosa's Catering provides venue-approved, ABC-licensed bartending services, even when couples supply their own wine, beer, or spirit selections. To make things convenient for all sorts of preferences, Rosa's Caterings can set up cash bars on request. Accommodated functions can range from bridal showers to anniversaries and beyond, providing options for personalization and more. With pleasant customer service combined with historic relevance and breathtaking views, Sunsphere Events can be the ideal celebration location for any couple.

    Dean Shultz at Prolific Event Venue in the Sunsphere is very accommodating and professional. We used the Sunsphere for our Sangeet and he designed the floorplan, suggested vendors and was on site during the entire event. Our family and friends had an amazing night of food, dancing and drinks with beautiful views of downtown Knoxville. All thanks to Dean! I will keep the Sunsphere in mind for future events.
