If you’re idea of a great Saturday consists of sitting behind the wheel of a classic ‘Vette, or talking Corvettes with other ‘Vette entusiasts, then be sure to be in Sevierville March 22-23 for the Spring Corvette Expo & Auction at the Sevierville Events Center. The show features a Corvette auction, swap meet, park n’ show and more!
It only happens twice a year, so if you’re a lover of original American muscle, you won’t want to miss the Corvette Auction & Expo. The Corvette Expo in Sevierville features a large auction, indoor/outdoor swap meet, sales corral, Corvettes’ Cruise and a competition show! And it’s all open to the public starting at 10 a.m. Saturday the 23rd.
Last year, thousands of spectators came through the gates of the Events Center to see the 75-plus show cars, 114 auction cars, and a whopping 550-odd vehicles in the Sales Car Corral! Over 250 vendors setup booths both inside and outside.
The Corvette Expo & Auction is the perfect family-oriented show. With so many things to do in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Dollywood – just minutes away, this show is the perfect family getaway…and for all you gearheads, it’s just another excuse to take that hot rod out of the garage to show off!
The Corvette Expo & Auction is just one of the many classic car shows in the Sevierville area this spring, all leading up to the Grand Spring Rod Run in Pigeon Forge.

The expo has actually been ongoing for over 30 years now, just not in Sevierville. The first Corvette Expo was held at Knoxville’s Chilhowee Park in March of 1977 before moving in 1980 to the Bill Mullins Exhibition Center in East Knoxville. The fall show in 1983 was held at the Knoxville Convention Center. Then, in the fall of 1987, the show shifted yet again to the Knoxville Auto Auction out west. In 1988, the event returned to Chilhowee Park, where the Corvette Expo enjoyed a 19-year run before moving to the new Sevierville Events Center.
