SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

ITALIAN LIGHTS FESTIVAL

NASHVILLE’S ITALIAN FESTIVAL & EVENT OF THE YEAR!

For the past 7 years, the Italian Lights Festival has been Nashville’s annual celebration of Italian food, wine, and culture – with a dash of Southern hospitality.  The festival features live music, arts & crafts vendors, authentic food and wine tastings, in an upscale, family friendly environment. In 2016, to accommodate growing crowds, the festival moved to Bicentennial Mall, one of Nashville’s largest public areas and arguably it’s most stunning venue.

The Italian Lights Festival returns this August 18th-21st, four days highlighting Italian food, wine, music & traditions. The festival culminates in the spectacular finale of Great American Eclipse, which passes over Nashville on Monday, August 21st.  This is the first time in over 500 years that a total solar eclipse will pass through Music City, and Nashville is the largest American city in the path of totality (total darkness).

4 DAYS OF RECORD-BREAKING CROWDS

OVER 1 MILLION TOURISTS are expected to flood Nashville for the Eclipse viewing, and Italian Lights will be the biggest free event in the city! The festival has been extended to 4 days to accommodate the Solar events and crowds. Our festival is one of a handful nationwide recognized by NASA as an official Viewing Location for this celestial event – and the crowds this year will be record-breaking.
