Nashville Fairgrounds to transform Into a 100,000 sq. ft. holiday experience, featuring immersive light shows and a projection-mapped skating rink.

This holiday season, Nashville Fairgrounds will transform into the immersive holiday multiverse experience, Jingle Beat beginning Friday, November 25 through Saturday, December 31.

Spread across three themed multiverse worlds, Jingle Beat will offer both indoor and outdoor experiences, treating visitors to interactive installations, curated food and beverage offerings, live performances and light and video spectacles.

The experience invites guests to immerse themselves in the same fantastical journey through the cosmos, revealing new and magnificent worlds of which they’ve never dreamed, while encountering Jingle Beat’s resident charismatic characters as they traverse from world to world.
