Music City Food + Wine Announces 2018 Chef Showcase Schedule

Details are rolling in for the sixth annual Music City Food + Wine festival. 

This year’s event happens Sept. 14 through Sept. 16 in downtown Nashville and it sounds like it’ll be another epic weekend. More than 40 of the city’s top chefs will come together to bring you delicious food and drinks.

“Music City Food + Wine brings my two favorite things together: food + community,” says Aaron Clemins, chef & partner of Kuchnia + Keller. “I can’t think of anything better than getting to share food and fun with some of the best chefs in this city and the country. It’s going to be a great weekend!”

The Chef Showcase will feature different chefs and restaurants every day. On Friday, they’ll cook from 6 PM to 10 PM. There will also be drinks, cooking demos and more. On Saturday, the Grand Taste Tents will host the chef participants from 11 AM to 4 PM. Check out the participant lists for both dates below.

If you’re interested in attending this year’s food festival, there are a variety of ticket options.
