After CMA fest and Pilgrimage fest has been cancelled, yet another Nashville staple event has been canceled due to COVID-19!
The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp announced on Tuesday. May 20, that the annual free party and concert that the city hosts every year, has been cancelled! Instead of hosting a party where hundreds of thousands patrons take over the city, a fireworks show honoring health care workers and health care responders will be broadcast on NewChannel 5!
For the show, the city's parks will be closed in order to prevent spectators from gathering to watch the fireworks!
Last year, the even attracted 343,000 attendees and generated more than $14 million in director visitor spending for the city!
Music City has consistently had one of the largest July 4th celebrations in the nation, and while the crowds will be asked to stay home this year and our fireworks display will be minimal, we still wanted to find a way to celebrate our country and our city during this difficult time
