SMYRNA - The Town of Smyrna in conjunction with Carpe Artista and SIMA announces the Simply Smyrna Celebration. This family friendly summer festival will take place Friday June 13th from 5pm -10pm and will be the official kickoff celebration for the Town of Smyrna’s revitalization project. The celebration will consist of an official ribbon cutting and opening of the revitalized Historic Train Depot and refurbished Assembly Hall as well as the kickoff celebration of Smyrna’s new Farmers Market opening the very next morning.
The festival will include 3 outdoor music stages and 2 indoor stages featuring 14 local acts playing various styles of music. “We will have Jazz, Light Rock, Americana, R&B, Rap and Rock n Roll to name a few. A little something for everybody” stated Ron Alley, Director of Carpe Artista. Along with music the festival will also showcase over 40 local craft and business vendors, food, and a kids zone. A special wine tasting with Jazz will take place in the newly renovated Assembly Hall. Local dignitaries will also be on hand to celebrate with the community. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the newly remodeled Train Depot and the Assembly hall.
“We hope to see the community come out and enjoy a fun evening and celebrate Tennessee’s town” stated Ron Alley. Smyrna is a great town with a unique history and we are thrilled to be a small part of breathing life back into one of the town’s most historic buildings.”
The celebration continues on Saturday morning with the opening day of Smyrna’s much anticipated farmers market. The farmers market will run every other Saturday through the summer on Front Street. Vendors and local artisans who would still like to be a part of this historic event are encouraged to secure a spot.
Simply Smyrna Celebration will be held in historic downtown Smyrna on Front Street and is free to attend. The festival is sponsored locally by Chick-fil-A Smyrna, Home Depot and Dempsey, Dilling and Associates.
