Music City Track Carnival


20th Annual Music City Track Carnival

The 20th annual Music City Track Carnival will take place Friday-Sunday June 3-5, 2022 in Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt University (with the Hammer taking place up the road at Western Kentucky University). With a new name, a new logo, and a new menu of events, what was the Music City Distance Carnival for 18 years expanded in 2021 to offer pro sprints, jumps and throws, and joined with the American Track League. This 3-day event continues to be three meets all rolled into one: a youth and open meet for all-comers, an elite level high school meet, and a professional meet stacked with Olympians. There is literally a race for everyone!

This year the pro portion of the meet is part of the World Athletics Continental Silver Tour, and has over $75,000 in prize money. Several defending World and Olympic champions are already committed to competing. The meet will be aired live on ESPN on Sunday June 5th.
