Events That Will Have You Talking About Chattanooga for Years 

Chattanooga is one of the most revitalized cities in the country with thriving arts, music, and dining scenes complemented by exceptional world-class experiences. We’ve been named by Lonely Planet as the “Best in the U.S.” and “10 U.S. destinations you need to see” and New York Times named Chattanooga one of the “Top 45 Places to go” in the world. We are the only city in the world that has been named twice by Outside magazine as the “Best Town Ever.”  

The Scenic City offers all the amenities of a major metropolitan city in a comfortable, convenient, and beautiful location. Downtown is walkable or there is a bicycle share system or free downtown electric shuttle to get around even faster. But maybe not as fast our citywide internet speeds which gained us the moniker “Gig City” for having the fastest internet in the world. 

People say we’re “aggressively” welcoming because we have some of the kindest, friendliest people you’ll ever meet. And it’s true. The community loves coming together to host groups and providing one-of-a-kind immersive experiences that will have you raving about Chattanooga for years. 

Check out the variety of wonderful events we will be hosting in 2023. We have even included some events later in the year that you can start training for now.
