Swimville: Models, Music, and More
Lower Broadway, between 4th & 5th Avenues, will be tented for Swimville, featuring sponsor exhibits, live music from twelve Nashville artists spanning genres, and fan fun from 11am to 5pm each day. Fans will see SI Swimsuit come to life through activities, showcases, and model appearances. Bring your magazine or buy the Swimsuit issue there and get it autographed by the models.
