The RC Foundation is a not-for-profit organization set up to host performances, art-related shows, and educational and community events in downtown Newport and Cocke County, TN.  

Located in The RC Entertainment and Event Center, we wish to inspire the young and young-at-heart starting with hospitality in the Rustic Cow Ice Cream and Cow Cafe located in downtown Newport, TN - the home of Rocky Top - with a strong history and heritage of music and arts.  

We wish to provide an atmosphere in which everyone can gather, inspire and encourage each other, and be a part of our family in the beautiful Appalachia Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.
