Country music lovers should make sure to be in Nashville during June, during the four-day Fan Fair, when the Country Music Association lines up a feast of four big concerts and numerous other events to add up to Country Music's biggest party. Created in 1972, the CMA allows fans to interact with the big names of country music who go all out to meet the fans and happily pose for photographs and sign autographs as they wander through the event and activity venues.
The Fair is aimed at artists getting to know their fans who flock to Nashville in their tens of thousands for the nightly concerts and all-day non-stop music at Riverfront Park. Some artists have been known to sign autographs for 23 hours non-stop. New up-and-coming artists are also showcased and festival-goers are given the chance to be the first to see tomorrow's stars in concert. Festival-goers are encouraged to extend a visit to the festival for a few days and take some time taking in the city once the festival wraps up. Four day passes are available, though they sell out quickly.
Venue: Various throughout downtown
Date: 7 - 10 June 2018
