The festival will feature fantastic live music, random drawings, a display of police vehicles & equipment and fun activities for the kids including face painting, giant inflatables, a balloon artist, caricature artist, an appearance by Shoney Bear and so much more.

    National Anthem

    This year's national anthem will be performed by the Nashville Police Department's own Sgt. Clifton Knight. Sgt. Knight is in his 11th year as a member of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department; he was promoted to sergeant in February 2015 and currently serves as a supervisor on the South Precinct’s overnight shift. Sgt. Knight is also a proud member of the MNPD’s award winning Drill & Ceremony Team and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice Administration from Middle Tennessee State University.
