Music City Midnight 2017 Re-Cap

The Music City Midnight New Year's Eve celebration at Bicentennial State Capitol Mall was such a success, we at the Nashville Farmers' Market were thrilled to end the year with such a bang — literally! Fireworks illuminated the sky as Keith Urban wowed a crowd of more than 100,000 festival attendees who visited the market house throughout the night for food, beverages, and shelter from the rain. We were honored to offer a Market House of more than 16 restaurants and shops to provide dinner, hot coffee, cocktails, and local craft beer for this smash of a Nashville New Year's Eve event,

The beginning of the evening began with a surge of festival go-ers who poured into the Market House to start the night off right. Crowds ordered warm hand-held crepes, wood-fired pizzas, and hot espresso drinks before settling into cozy indoor seats as the show began. At 6:15pm, as Mayor Megan Barry kicked off the night with the raising of the music note, the Market House watched-on with two big screens live streaming the event that kept guests connected with the concert in the park all night.

As the night progressed, crowds blew noise-makers and danced to Styxx, as restaurants and merchants continued to serve a festive crowd. The Picnic Tap reported to having a record day at the Market, as well as Butter Cake Babe Coffee Café, who stayed busy keeping guests caffeinated throughout the event. All-in-all, it was an exciting way to kick off 2017, and we are excited to participate in the Music City Midnight next year!
