About The Evelyn Center at Crabtree Farms

The Evelyn Center is the ideal location for your next meeting, fundraiser, wedding, baby shower, or small gathering. Situated only 10 minutes from downtown Chattanooga on a 22 acre community farm, you'll be delighted by the quaint charm of this unexpected green space. The main building features a high open beamed ceiling, rough wood walls, and a glass garage door that blurs the boundary between inside and outside spaces. For larger events, we also have a field shaded by nearby trees yet close enough to access the building. Amenities include a fully stocked kitchen, community area, covered porch, two wheelchair accessible restrooms, and the surrounding grounds. The facility also features WIFI, a digital projector + 119" drop down screen, and tables and chairs for up to 75 guests. Plus, parking is a breeze with our onsite lot. As a non-profit farm, proceeds from event rentals directly support educational programming for the community. ***Please Note: Events above 50 guests are indoor/outdoor events at the farm.

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!
