Opened in 1940, Civic Auditorium was designed to the cornerstone of the Parks and Recreation program in Kingsport and has served that purpose since its creation. Not only does the Civic Auditorium house the Parks and Recreation Services but also the Athletic offices. The history of the Civic Auditorium is rich. From legendary country and bluegrass musicians to hometown heroes, the stage of the Civic Auditorium has seen the best East Tennessee has to offer. Today, the Civic Auditorium still houses the offices of the Kingsport Parks and Recreation program and has become a common place for the organizations of Kingsport to hold their meetings. The facility has multiple rooms of all sizes to rent for organizational meetings, conferences, birthday and anniversary parties, and other group functions. The main auditorium holds up to 800 people for theater and concert style events or 560 for dinning events. The Civic Auditorium is also home to the History Room, where the walls are covered by an artistic mural of the history of the Kingsport area painted by local artist Suzanne Barrett Justis. The Civic Auditorium is also home to the administrative offices that oversee the Legion Pool which is located just next door.
