About the Venue:

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, located in downtown Nashville, has been called the “Smithsonian of country music,” celebrated for its broad cultural impact, educational mission, and unrivaled collection of historically important artifacts related to country music. Since its opening in 1967, the collecting of objects and archival materials have enabled the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to build the world’s largest and most significant collection of materials documenting and preserving country music, its history, and culture from folk roots to the present. We are so excited to give Fastener Fair USA a true taste of Nashville by selecting the Country Music Hall of Fame as our venue for the 2023 Opening Night Networking Party.

The party will take place in the Mike Curb Conservatory, which opens to the Nashville sky and was designed to symbolize the “front porch” origins of country music and to function as a welcoming place for guests to assemble. The architects drew inspiration for its heavy steel frame from railroads and bridges, which connected small towns where country music came to life. Just off the Conservatory, the tree-lined Curb Records Courtyard will also be accessible to guests shortly before and during the Fastener Fair USA Networking Party.


The Country Music Hall of Fame is located just a few steps away from Music City Center where the Fastener Fair USA exhibit hall is located. Refer to Google Maps or Apple Maps for step-by-step directions.

The party will take place on Level 1 in the Mike Curb Conservatory near the museum’s main entrance.
