Established in the 1880s, this 81-acre park hosted the major Appalachian
Expositions of 1910 and 1911 and, in 1913, the even bigger National Conservation Exposition--touted as history’s first expo devoted to conservation of natural resources. It drew more than one million
visitors including national reformist leaders like William Jennings Bryan, Helen Keller, Booker T. Washington and Gifford Pinchot. Of the former grand buildings, only the old gazebo survives. Since about 1915, the park
hosts the annual Tennessee Valley Fair.
Today, Chilhowee Park & Exposition Center is an 81-acre, multi-use, venue owned by the City of Knoxville, located blocks away from interstate access and minutes from downtown. The facility includes a 3-acre lake, bandstand, 4500+ seat amphitheater, 57,100 sq. ft. exhibition hall, barns, arenas and picnic shelters.
