Italian Lights has moved to Bicentennial Mall in the center of Nashville! We are excited about the change, which will help accommodate the surge in attendance and publicity generated by the festival.  The move also solidifies our relationship with the Oktoberfest, Nashville’s oldest and largest street festival.

What does that mean for our Business Sponsors?

Extended hours (to boost sales and engagement), better amenities and more marketing opportunities!
