The grand opening for Nashville’s Music City Center will take place on May 19 and 20. The grand opening will include a free open house for the community on both days and will feature live, local music as well as a free street party and outdoor concert on May 20.
Mayor Karl Dean will present his State of Metro address at the Music City Center at 10 a.m. on May 20.
“I continue to be impressed by the size and beauty of the Music City Center and encourage Nashvillians to see it for themselves during the grand opening,” Dean said. “There’s no doubt we are a city with momentum, and with the opening of the Music City Center in May, even more tourists and conventioneers will get to see that first hand. We know it’s not going to be the biggest convention facility in the country, but I’m absolutely certain it will be the best.”
Major features in the $585 million facility include a public art collection comprised of more than 80 pieces and the 57,500 square feet Grand Ballroom, which seats 6,000 people. The Music City Center includes 1.2 million square feet of public space and a 900,000 square-foot garage (that includes 1,800 parking spaces).
