Little ones experience the joys of fishing at the 30th Annual Kids Fishing Derby in Gallatin, presented by WSM 650AM as a signature CMA Week Tourist Destination event!
With food trucks, live entertainment, prizes and meet & greets with the Grand Ole Opry’s new emerging talent, Gallatin Parks & Recreation and WSM 650AM join forces to create the best 30th annual Fishing Derby ever! Thanks to the TWRA, no license is required for this special event. Free for kids ages 5-16!
Be sure to register to compete for great prizes in the free Kids Fishing Derby that morning (https://www.gallatintn.gov/150/Special-Events). Plus, free fishing poles for kids while supplies last! Several prizes will be presented with special awards for each age group for the Biggest Fish, Smallest fish, and the Largest Stringer. An extra special event is the Casting Contest with prizes awarded in two age groups.
It’s a WSM Radio event, so of course there will be live music and autographs taking place all day with special guests, including Irlene Mandrell, Buddy Jewell and Sam Tate, Hannah Dasher, Chancie Neal, Dustin Collins, Jon Brennan, Joe Denim and Nick Davisson and Gerrod Bee with one more artist announcement coming soon. There will be tailgating and shuttles from parking area to fishing sites and entertainment stages. Visit WSM’s website to get details and the announcements of new surprise artists fishing or performing at this family fun event!
There will be plenty of free parking with shuttles courtesy of Spontuneous: The Song Game. Pack a picnic, bring snacks to tailgate or create a meal by stopping by the food trucks that will be on-hand. Stay all day for fishing, music, autographs, games, contests and more!
