Events & Concerts in the City

An event space in the heart of the city

Frequented by Artists, Brides, and Gatherers

The Square Room was founded as a integral piece of the 4 Market Square Establishment in the early 2000's and has been a source of artistic expression in the city ever since. The room itself embodies an open floor plan and is sound engineered to our precise specifications. The tones are rich and aesthetic to represent a cozy modern style. A large glass wall backs up the room and pears through to Cafe 4, the sister of sorts that supplies downtown Knoxville with rethought comfort food. Cafe 4 also provides a high level of catering to the The Square Room for events and gatherings when needed.

Weddings and Receptions

Downtown has a sense of energy and vibrancy. The architecture is thoughtful and aged, full of stories. Children play in the fountains and trees find a way to grow large and beautiful. We focus on continuing that light inwards, inside our space. We know what this day means to you, and it is no less than our great joy to bring your vision to fruition.

Word Players- March 20

The WordPlayers of Knoxville presents a Concert Reading of Jam Jar Sonnets, a musical comedy/drama, on Monday, March 20 at 7:00 p.m. at The Square Room, 4 Market Square in downtown Knoxville. Admission is free and doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more information see or call 865-539-2490.

Jam Jar Sonnets is a compelling story told through poetry, dialogue, and music. It is the story of Charles and Amanda who, as children, formed an intimate bond through poetry. Charles had a troubled childhood and Amanda helped him conquer his insecurities. Over time, the two lost touch with one another. When Charles finds one of Amanda's poems on the back of a jam jar label, he is determined to find the girl who understood him when no one else could.

The WordPlayers is a 501(c)3 theatre company based in Knoxville since 1995. Jam Jar Sonnets is one of three Staged Readings in a series sponsored by Brad Croisdale, Realty Executives. Other programming includes Little Women, the musical, at the Bijou Theatre July 14-16, 2017.
