Tennessee’s Only 2021 Nursery Trade Show by Middle Tennessee Nursery Association

The Middle Tennessee Nursery Association (MTNA) has been notified by the City of McMinnville, that the McMinnville Civic Center/Milner Recreation Center has been closed to large groups due to COVID restrictions.
City of McMinnville as of August 27th released that “Large indoor gatherings including classes at the Milner Center are postponed” This and other precautionary measures are being taken to limit the recent surge of COVID-19 cases locally. The City of McMinnville will continue to monitor updates from the CDC and state health officials and will adjust their response plans and operations based upon their advice.
While we are very disappointed that the Show for 2021 has been cancelled, we have already started working on the 2022 Middle Tenn. Nursery Association Horticulture Expo with the same enthusiasm and determination. With the 2021 show on track to be a great success, we will continue to strive to make this event educational, a platform for sales and networking, and fun for all our members and participants. The MTNA Board would like to thank all exhibitors, pre-registered attendees, and trade show sponsors for all your support. Social Media and our Website (MTNA.com) will release 2022 Trade Show information as it becomes available.
