Rocketown is a 12,000 square foot non-profit entertainment facility on Federal Hwy consisting of a music venue, cafe, recreation, and programming. We provide a safe, alcohol and drug free environment for youth to enjoy concerts, classes, video games and much more. While many of the classes we offer are centered around middle school and high school students, the concerts are all-ages events.

Rocketown’s board was inspired to grow the scope of programming and moved to a central location in downtown Nashville. Mark Ezell, co-founded the current facility which opened in 2003, and houses a coffee bar; photography, art and dance studios; stages for live entertainment; and Middle Tennessee’s only indoor skatepark. To date there have been more than 425,000 visits with an average of 1,350 teens from across Middle Tennessee participating in programs each week.
After six years of meaningful relationships with teens in its downtown Nashville location, we are honored to offer rocketown to South Florida youth through our community partnerships, volunteers, and dedicated staff.
