Nashville Denim Days is done.
In an email sent to partners, Nashville Denim Days organizer, Kingpins, said the event slated for Oct. 5-6 at Marathon Music Works has been cancelled.
“In light of a busy event schedule and growth in New York and Amsterdam, Denim Days has decided to not move forward with a second year of the Nashville event at Marathon Music Works. We are so appreciative to have had a successful one-time event in Nashville in 2018, which brought together local and national denim vendors, vintage dealers, music and makers of all kinds. We are grateful for your enthusiasm for Nashville Denim Days and to the city for welcoming the event with open arms,” the email noted.
Modeled after Amsterdam Denim Days and New York Denim Days, organizers brought the B2C festival to Music City U.S.A. last October for the first time. The two-day event featured activations by local brand Imogene + Willie, as well as players from the supply chain like Tencel and e3 Cotton.
Denim Days began in Amsterdam in 2014 driven by the House of Denim’s initiative to foster the city’s denim industry and the arrival of Kingpins Amsterdam. The annual event launched in New York City in 2017. The most recent edition earlier this month included yoga classes, a sneaker exhibit and trend presentations.
The next Amsterdam Denim Days is scheduled for Oct. 21-27.
