Nashville 2018 July 4th Train Tickets

Let Freedom Sing! House Rules

Tickets for the Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee's (RTA) July 4th Music City Star train from Lebanon to downtown Nashville for the Music City celebration at Nashville's Riverfront Park are now on sale.

The train will depart from Lebanon Station at 4 p.m., Martha at 4:13 p.m., Mt. Juliet at 4:27 p.m., Hermitage at 4:36 p.m., Donelson at 4:46 p.m. and arrive at Nashville's Riverfront Station at 5 p.m. The return train to Lebanon leaves 45 minutes after the conclusion of the Nashville fireworks.

An allotment of 950 tickets is available to the general public. Round-trip tickets cost $15 plus a $0.88 processing fee and are available for purchase through the Music City Star website or at www.ticketsnashville.com with a credit card. Tickets will be on sale until 24 hours prior to departure or until they are sold out, whichever comes first. Tickets will not be for sale July 4th on the platforms. Parking is free at all of the outlying stations. Anyone needing special accommodations to board should call 615-862-5950 prior to their trip.

Customers will receive only one ticket for the round-trip and will need to show the ticket to train personnel when boarding. Upon boarding, each customer will receive a colored wristband in place of the ticket, which will serve as their train ticket. Customers must show the wristband to the conductor for the return trip. After the fireworks, passengers should be seated in the same color train car as their wristband for easier exiting at their designated station.
