Fans of the “toughest sport on dirt” can take an interactive step closer to the high-octane action when the Professional Bull Rider series returns to Nashville in August at the inaugural Fan Fest outside Bridgestone Arena.
Set for Aug. 18-19, the PBR Ford Tough series will return to Bridgestone Arena for the second year in a row, with some of the world’s best bull riders competing for top honors.
While inside the arena spectators can watch reigning PBR world champion Cooper Davis and Tennessee native Cody Nance battle, outside in Bridgestone Plaza fans can participate in an “interactive entertainment fan zone”.
Activities include Cornhole games, sponsor booths from Ford Trucks, Monster Energy Drink and Matador Jerky, as well as live entertainment and autograph signings. There will be food tastings and family friendly activities as well.
Tickets for the indoor action are still available through Ticketmaster, but all fan fest activities are free.
The Music City Knockout will begin at 7:45 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 18, and at 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 19.
