Acme Feed & Seed

Acme Feed & Seed

Located next to Music City’s riverfront, Acme Feed and Seed is right on Broadway. Walk out the door after a day of conferencing in the beautifully rustic Feed and Seed and you’re right in the heart of Nashville life with a great bar scene full of live music, friendly people, and everything great Nashville has to offer!


For the walking enthusiast, the walk between hotel and venue is 1.3 miles right along Broadway and offers many sights to see and fun to be had. For those who prefer, we’ll be offering a shuttle service to get people where they need to go.

Hotel Information

Given the expense of hotels in downtown Nashville, we were very fortunate to get a special group rate at Aloft West End —just $199/night. Call 1-888-627-8279 to book and tell them you’d like the “EE Community Association” rate.
