The eclipse’s 95% totality in Nashville is projected to take place around 2:00pm CST.

Inside the Victorian Theater, guests will enjoy a delectable Southern-inspired, buffet meal, prepared by Gaylord Opryland’s talented culinary team. The selection includes a garden salad, potato salad, sweet bourbon glazed chicken, hickory smoked pork shoulder, Root Beer baked beans, vegetables, and a seasonal fruit cobbler dessert. The Tennessee Legends follow lunch show inside the Victorian Theater. Talented performers salute music from some Tennessee’s top musical icons like Elvis Presley and Dolly Parton. The show also features a full band, upbeat choreography, and state-of-the-art lighting, sound, and set design.
