About Firefly

Nashville’s Night to Shine!

Firefly Artisan Fair is a unique night market celebrating the Nashville arts community. Art has the power to illuminate, to transform, to educate, inspire and motivate. This event will highlight the arts in Nashville and call attention to the many artists of our area.

On Saturday, October 6th, The Clay Lady’s Campus will host a brand-new community arts event, Firefly Artisan Fair. This outdoor night market will feature local artisans, musicians and food trucks. Attendees will not only enjoy a unique shopping experience under the stars but will be invited to participate in a larger art experience. During the Fair, attendees will be invited to participate in a large public art installation. There will also be artist demonstrations, and an opportunity to explore our “Friends of Firefly” area, which offers information about Nashville’s various art programs and organizations. Admission and Valet Parking is FREE.

The firefly is an unassuming creature by day, but at night its gift of light transforms the darkness into something beautiful. Firefly Artisan Fair is based on the belief that art does the same—it illuminates and transforms both those who make and those who experience it. This one-night event is a celebration of the artistic “light” inside everyone, an opportunity to support local artists as well as participate directly in the arts as a community. Firefly Artisan Fair is Nashville’s night to shine light on its creatively-minded citizens.

This event will feature local artisans and is a FREE family friendly event!
