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).

Amy will be joined by special guests for the Lipscomb Lighting of the Green. And if past years are any indicator, we can expect to see more of your favorite artists from both Christian & Country Music. (Last year we saw CeCe Winans). The Lipscomb Academy & University choirs, as well as other Nashville music sensations, will join them.

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.
