Deck the Hall

All holiday season at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, we’re rockin' around the Christmas tree — our Deck the Hall events and activities offer free, festive fun for the whole family.

Join us on weekends through the New Year for extra yuletide cheer, including free photos with Santa, ornament-making, instrument demonstrations, songwriter sessions, and family programs for all ages.

Family Program: New Year’s Eve Lucky Black-Eyed Pea Maracas

Tuesday, December 31 | 10:30 a.m.–11:00 a.m., 11:15 a.m.–11:45 a.m.

In the South, eating black-eyed peas or “Hoppin’ John” on New Year’s Day is said to bring good luck for the coming year. Let’s get hands-on and make our own maracas using dried black-eyed peas. Families will explore this culinary tradition, percussion instruments in country music, and country songs about the holiday. Participants will go home with their handmade maracas to shake on New Year’s Eve. Ring in 2020 with musical fun and good luck. Ages four and up. Taylor Swift Education Center. Included with museum admission. Free to museum members. Limited seating.
