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.
