Nashville Stage Show
at Lanterns 2024

Performed at 7 pm, 8 pm, and 9 pm

inside the Cabe Festival Theatre


No WildBucks required -- free with admission to Lanterns

Wildwood's main stage is known for outstanding musical performances, and the tradition continues with the 2024 Lanterns stage show. This year, Lanterns celebrates the music and culture of Nashville, Tennessee -- and there's nothing more iconic of Nashville's musical artistry than the Grand Ole Opry.


We're excited to bring you performers who cherish the classic country sound, including songs popularized by Buck Owens, Ricky Skaggs, Brooks and Dunn, Randy Travis, and Darius Rucker. You'll be tapping your toes in no time, and you might even have the opportunity to dance across our stage yourself if you're so inclined!

The Nashville stage show runs for approximately 40 minutes, and the show is performed 3 times each evening at 7, 8, and 9 pm. Our indoor theater seats 625 and is wheelchair accessible, so there's plenty of room for y'all to come on in and sit a spell.

You don't need to buy additional tickets or spend WildBucks to see the show, thanks to the generosity of our main stage show sponsor, Bale Chevrolet. You are welcome to enter and leave the show whenever you wish (but please be courteous to the performers and your fellow audience members when moving about).
