The best date party venue!! - An Eventective User

We had out sorority date party here and everyone LOVED the space! The barn was so cute and everyone was so great to work with!

Wonderful Setting - An Eventective User from Knoxville, TN

We rented the Evelyn Center on a Sunday and had the entire farm to ourselves. The Center itself was just what we needed for a family gathering. Communication with staff was top-notch. No hassles. The kitchen could use some updating perhaps, but this did not interfere with our picnic lunch, which we brought with us. The folding tables are a bit worn, so bring table cloths. Despite the cost, this was much better for a rendezvous family gathering, and we could stick around for a lot longer than we could have done at a restaurant. Highly recommended venue at a great nonprofit.

Perfect place for a party or small reunion! - An Eventective User

We had such a great experience! There was plenty of space for everyone (est-50 people) in the cabin. It stayed very warm and cozy. It’s a cute little venue. Loved our time there!
