The Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) celebrates the season with its inaugural Winter Holiday Fest Marketplace on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 4 - 10 p.m. at War Memorial Auditorium. It's taking place in conjunction with the Nashville Downtown Partnership's First Saturday Art Crawl. The Marketplace invites your family to shop local artisan vendors in a festive, holiday environment that also features live musical performances, specialty food and beverages, arts and crafts, and more. During the TPAC Winter Holiday Fest Marketplace, you and the kids can also get a unique, holiday keepsake to treasure for years to come with photo opportunities with characters and props from Nashville Ballet's Nashville's Nutcracker and Nashville Repertory's A Christmas Story. The free festival will also include short musical performances from entertainers like Nashville-based rock band Future Thieves, American Idol finalist Naima Adedapo, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Deborah Allen, and country pop singer Sylvia. Specialty items from artisan vendors include fine art by Nashville-based artists; pottery, art and stained glass from Harpeth Arts Center; hand-poured candles by The Candle Bug; wreathes, trees and centerpieces from It's Always Something; unique gifts created by Island Cowgirl Jewelry; and desserts from Nonna's Sweets and Treats. War Memorial Auditorium is located across the street from TPAC at 301 Sixth Ave. N., Nashville. Call 615-782-4040 or visit tpac.org.
