Music and Molasses Festival

Music and Molasses Festival Logo

The magic is back in 2017 and better than ever!

Join us as we celebrate the harvest at the Tennessee Agricultural Museum, located at historic Ellington Agricultural Center in Nashville. The annual Music and Molasses Festival brings history alive, attracting several thousand people with an exciting blend of food, fellowship and fun.

What will your favorite moment be? Watching the sparks fly as the blacksmith turns iron into horseshoes? Watching a lump of clay rise suddenly into a graceful pot? Watching the sorghum run through the horse-turned mill? Perhaps a pony ride? So many sights, so many sounds, and so many delightful aromas await.

There’s something for everyone, and plenty of items to purchase fresh from local artisans, bakers and growers. Save the dates now!

Schedule:

  • Saturday, September 23 – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. central time
  • Sunday, September 24 – 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. central time
