Mamapalooza Murfreesboro Press Release

May is the month for mothers, and now Nashville-area moms have something besides Mother’s Day to celebrate in May. On Sunday, May 18, at Conrad’s in the Murfreesboro Holiday Inn, local non-profit Artsy Mamas and The Motherhood Foundation will present Mamapalooza Murfreesboro, a celebration of motherhood through music, art and shopping.

The festivities will run from 6-10 p.m. and the doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door. There will be a "Mama of the Year" contest, door prizes throughout the evening, skits and monologues to be performed by members of Artsy Mamas, musical acts to include Carolyn Sledge and Sugar Lime Blue, vendors and informational booths. Informational and vendor booths are available to rent for $25.00. Those interested in an application to rent a booth can get one by emailing mamapalooza.murfreesboro@gmail.com.

Artsy Mamas will announce the winner of the Mama of the Year contest at the event, and nominations are being accepted through April 15. The contest is open to Middle Tennessee mothers based on their achievements in service to the community. There will be a runner up and a Grand Prize Winner. Winners will be notified via the person who sent in the nomination. Both winners will receive two free tickets to the event and must be present to win.
