Special Events in Nashville

Tennessee State Fair
The Tennessee State Fair has been held practically annually for a little more than a century. Each year, more than 200,000 people come from far and wide to enjoy the festivities: music, rides, and, of course, great food. Though the fair only lasts a little more than two weeks, each day is packed with exciting contests, such as ice cream eating, hula-hooping, and karaoke. There are also interesting equestrian exhibits, as well as overall great musical entertainment.

Americana Music Festival
The New York Times has called the Americana Music Festival "the coolest music scene today." The festival, which lasts four days, is famous for its hundred live shows, and uniting thousands of musical artists and fans together for great music. It also includes an annual honors and award show and promises tons of entertainment for all music lovers. And for the more dedicated music aficionados, let's not forget the Americana Music Conference which includes panels, seminars, and much more educational information provided by music industry leaders.

Southern Ground Music & Food Festival
If there are two things Nashville is renowned for, it's music and food. The combination of both gave way to the Southern Ground Music & Food Festival. For two days, enjoy delicious food prepared by top chefs and the best gourmet restaurants around. While you eat, enjoy performances by Zac Brown Band, Los Lonely Boys, The Wheeler Boys, and more.

Live On The Green
Enjoy a free of charge and environmentally friendly atmosphere every week at the Live On The Green concert. Talented artists unite to bring the community together with fine music. Located on top of parking garage covered with a green roof, this concert was also created to encourage environmentally friendly practices, such as recycling, bicycling, and buying Eco-friendly merchandise. Enjoy great music and save the planet at the same time.

Nashville Shakespeare Festival
Nashville is often called Music City, but there is much more than music to entertain the masses. Take the Nashville Shakespeare Festival for instance, which offers two professional productions a year. Its goals are to revive William Shakespeare's works to everyone and bring the excitement back to theater. Come enjoy great performances by talented actors in plays such as "Much Ado About Nothing" and "Macbeth". Bring the entire family in the summertime to enjoy the performance on the grass in Shakespeare in the Park, or in the wintertime to enjoy a more traditional production in an actual theater.
