The Nashville Predators will be well represented at the 2016 Music City Sports Festival, highlighted by an appearance from No. 15.

Craig Smith will be on hand this weekend at the Music City Center to discuss all things Preds hockey, just one of the many items for fans to look forward to at the annual celebration of sports in the city of Nashville.

The Predators Panel will take place on Saturday afternoon from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. (CT), with Voice of the Predators Pete Weber leading the discussion with Smith and Preds President and CEO Sean Henry on stage. Following the panel, fans will have a chance to meet Smith with an autograph session.

Young Preds fans also have the opportunity to participate in the festival, with Predators broadcaster Stu Grimson leading a street hockey clinic on both Saturday and Sunday. The Preds Energy Team will also host clinics on both days, giving young fans the chance to see what it’s like to lead a cheer at Bridgestone Arena.
