HOTEL OPTIONS FOR BIG EARS
Big Ears has partnered with Visit Knoxville to offer festival patrons access to downtown Knoxville hotel rooms during the festival at preferred rates. Please click the button below to be taken to the Visit Knoxville hotel portal where you can secure a room for the festival. Availability is limited and patrons will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis. If no rooms are available, those interested can sign up to be placed on a waiting list and will be contacted if rooms become available. Joining the waiting list does not guarantee a room reservation.
In addition to the Visit Knoxville hotel portal, we encourage you to utilize your favorite hotel or travel search engine to secure lodging in the Papermill, Cedar Bluff, or Merchants Drive areas of Knoxville. Each neighborhood features multiple business-class hotels at lower rates than downtown properties and are located a short 10-15 minute drive from downtown Big Ears venues. Once downtown, there is ample parking featuring a limited number of surface lots that offer free parking 24/7 and city garages which are free when exiting after 6 P.M. on Thursday and Friday and the entire day Saturday and Sunday.
