The epicenter of CMA Fest is Xfinity Fan Fair X with artist meet-and-greets, concerts, lifestyle exhibits, shopping, live broadcasts and more inside Music City Center. Continuing the tradition of the original Fan Fair – bringing fans and artists together like no other festival can. Xfinity Fan Fair X is home to three live music stages including the CMA Close Up Stage. In 2018, over 70,000 people attended Xfinity Fan Fair X during CMA Fest.
The idea is to create a space where one can discover new brands, create memories in photo booths with friends and also have opportunities to do DIY activities of their own.
Our 2019 goals are to continue to expand the "experience" for our attendees, but more importantly help these brands grow in ways never imaginable by connecting them online with customers and give them the resources they needed to make their dreams a reality.
