One of our favorite free Nashville Christmas Events, Lipscomb Lighting of the Green 2018, is happening soon. I have all the concert, dining and weather details you need before heading to Lipscomb University…
Lipscomb Lighting of the Green 2018 Date & Time
The annual Lighting of the Green event over at Lipscomb University will be held on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, beginning at 4pm. The event will be streamed live beginning at 5 p.m. CST at live.lipscomb.edu.
Lighting of the Green Concert
Once again, Amy Grant will be hosting a star-studded concert and of course, Santa will be there to take pictures with the kids (also free). The festivities begin at 4 and the concert begins at 5:15pm.
Amy’s special guests aren’t confirmed for the Lipscomb Lighting of the Green just yet. That being said, it looks like we can expect to see some of your favorite artists from both Christian & Country Music. The Lipscomb Academy & University choirs, as well as other Nashville music sensations, will join them.
Lighting of the Green Dining Options
Pre-concert activities are located in the Allen Arena and include free photos with Santa. Food is also available for purchase at the Bennett Center’s Chick-Fil-A, Papa John’s Pizza, Blue Coast Burrito, Creekstone Burgers and Starbucks.
Lighting of the Green Merry Marketplace
The event also includes Merry Marketplace, a collection of holiday vendors with a portion of the purchases benefiting scholarships to Lipscomb. The Marketplace takes place in the Allen Arena lobby and concourse beginning at 4 p.m.
And of course, you won’t want to miss the lighting of the 30 foot Christmas Tree in the Allen Arena mall.
I happen to be an adjunct professor in the Communication Studies department at Lipscomb University and it’s fun to watch all the build-up for the event going on right outside my building.
Handicapped parking is available in the Allen Arena parking garage. The event will be held rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the festivities will move inside Allen Arena. Lipscomb recommends for guests to bring lawn chairs and blankets.
