The City of Brentwood invites you to attend the 34th Annual Independence Day Celebration at the Eddy Arnold Amphitheater in Crockett Park from 5pm to 10 pm on Monday July 4, 2022.

The celebration, “Red, White and Boom in Brentwood” will feature The Smoking Section as the evening’s live music. Food trucks will begin serving food at 5pm, with music starting at 7pm and fireworks at 9pm. Admission is free thanks to 2022 sponsors which include platinum sponsors Brentwood Academy, First Bank, Franklin Financial Advisors, and Tractor Supply Company.  Gold and silver supporting sponsorships include, Core Civic, TMPartners, State Farm Agent Marti Loftis, Orangetheory Fitness, the Middle Tennessee YMCA, Southern Oak Wealth Group, Gresham Smith, Trustcore, Zeitlin Sotheby’s, The Parent Company, Huntington Learning Center, TrustCore, Avenue Construction and media sponsor Mix 92.9.

Brentwood Mayor Rhea Little said, “we thank all our sponsors, the local business community, residents, musicians, and City staff who make the summer concerts a success year after year. We had a record-breaking attendance of more than twelve-thousand last year and hope to see as many residents as possible again this year.”

Last year’s July 4th event brought Tim Akers and the Smoking Section to the stage to rock the crowd. Unfortunately, Tim Akers passed away in 2021, due to a lengthy battle with leukemia. While he will be missed, the musicians of The Smoking Section will return to the amphitheater this Independence Day. Learn more about the uptown funk band online.

Personal Fireworks Aren’t Allowed in Neighborhoods

A reminder to residents that personal firework displays are illegal inside the City of Brentwood without a permit – something that has been part of the municipal code for many years.   The City asks that all residents be respectful of their neighbors and allow the only fireworks set off to be those in permitted displays. The Brentwood Municipal Code defines fireworks as any combustible or explosive device, or article prepared for the purpose of producing a visible or audible effect by combustion, explosion, deflagration or detonation. Examples include, but are not limited to, firecrackers, torpedoes, skyrockets, Roman candles, bottle rockets, sparklers, smoke bombs, and other fireworks of like construction and any fireworks containing any explosive or flammable compound. Flammable “sky lanterns” are also prohibited per state law enacted in 2011.  Concerns about violations can be reported to the Brentwood Police at the non-emergency line only, at 615-371-0160.

Traffic Plan

Beginning around 8pm, all roads into Crockett Park will be closed and drop offs will not be allowed. The following roads will be open for one-way traffic, exiting the park only until the completion of the firework show:

  • Wilson Pike – northbound from Crockett Road to Concord Road
  • Wilson Pike – southbound from Crockett Road to Moores Lane
  • Crockett Road – eastbound from the rear park exit to Arrowhead Drive
  • Crockett Road – westbound from Volunteer Pkwy to Wilson Pike
