Highlights From the 2018 Music City Food + Wine Festival

The weather was perfect in Nashville this weekend for the sixth annual Music City Food + Wine Festival. It took place Sept 14-16, 2018 at Bicentennial Park and Walk of Fame Park in downtown Nashville. This year the Music City Food + Wine Festival ticket options included an All-In ticket, as well as Friday evening ticket, Saturday ticket, Harvest Night ticket, and Gospel Brunch ticket. After another year of planning and making a few tweaks, local Nashville culinary talent and celebrity chefs came together for three days of non-stop eating, drinking, and music.
 
With more than 80 food and beverage tastings each day it was very hard to narrow down!! But here it is, a rundown of our top 15 favorites from the Grand Taste Friday night and Saturday. 
Angry Orchard offered a gorgeous area to relax and take in the festival.

  57. Angela Crews Beardsley What happened to George Floyd is wrong, but this……. is just as WRONG. I am so sad for this officer. He was serving his community and trying to make a positive difference. The shooter, perpetrator, deserves full punishment, life in prison. This rioting needs to stop now. It is not about Floyd anymore. It is anarchy. Political activist trying to breakdown society and create chaos and influence elections. Disgusting that the youth are so WOKE and can’t bsee they are being played. And… I stand with all lives, black, white, brown, red, and cops…..they all matter. Politicians are using the people to divide and conquer here. And they are succeeding. I pray for this man’s family and George’s. They are suffering needlessly. This evil is going to destroy us. The riots are cancerous and will only hurt not help. God help us please.
