TPAC exterior

Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) is one of the most unique facilities of its kind in the United States. TPAC is home to three beautiful spaces with multiple, state-of-the-art capabilities. Founded in 1980, TPAC is located near the state capitol in downtown Nashville, within the James K. Polk Cultural Center and State Office Building. In addition to the facilities within the arts center, TPAC manages War Memorial Auditorium, a multi-purpose and historic concert venue across the street.

TPAC accommodates major music, dance, theatrical, and television productions, along with performances in intimate settings and a wide variety of such events as award ceremonies, films, pageants, recitals, product launches, receptions, and meetings. All performances open to the general public are featured on TPAC’s electronic marquee, while clients have access to our lobby screens for special acknowledgments, if desired.

War Memorial Auditorium offers the perfect backdrop for any memorable occasion including concerts, weddings, corporate events, banquets, exhibitions, private tour rehearsals, recordings, and more. The flexibility of War Memorial Auditorium and its plaza make it truly a unique venue in Middle Tennessee.

All events at TPAC’s venues are booked through our Programming & Sales Department. Call 615-782-4086 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, or fill out the Rental Information Form.
