Originally Knoxville’s Ice Factory, the OCPAC uses its warehouse-style open floor plan and high ceilings to welcome artists from all over the region to come and share their work here. One of Knoxville’s most versatile and exciting performing arts spaces, the OCPAC creates opportunities for local performing artists to expand their work by providing a downtown platform, accessible rates, and flexible staging and seating. As Knoxville grows into a leading player in the regional arts scene, the Old City Performing Arts Center seeks to elevate the work of local artists and provide a space for leading artists in every field to play to an audience that is hungry for their work.
