With spring blooming and the weather finally heating up (here’s hoping to the end of surprise overnight snow), there are more and more outdoor events around Nashville to attend. Whether you live in Music City or are visiting, there are exciting events to attend every week.
- Nashville Fashion Week: April 13th-17th
- For a week, Nashville will be taken over by its cities fashionistas and designers, showcasing the best local clothing from up and coming designers.
- Nashville Wine and Food Festival: April 14th
- Four hours of Nashville’s best wine and food? Um… yes please. Be careful not to imbibe on to much of either though. Or do. I’m not your mother.
- Tax Day: April 17th
- Not really a Nashville thing. Just a friendly reminder.
- Nashville Comedy Festival: April 16th-22nd
- Music festivals don’t always have the spotlight in Nashville. Every year features a week of beloved comedians (and even a couple funny musicians) performing throughout the city for a week. Highlights include Jeff Dunham, Bill Burr, Tim Allen, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Brad Paisley, and the Comedy Get Down (the comedy tour of Cedric “the Entertainer,” George Lopez, Eddie Griffin, and D.I. Hughley)
- Record Store Day: April 21st
- Though this is a national celebration, celebrating it in Music City is never a bad idea. So for those who still have turntables, head to one (or many) of Nashville’s great record stores, where many will have discounts on vinyl and live bands performing. I, for one, will be going to Third Man Records, owned by Nashville resident Jack White, and Vinyl Tap.
- Nashville Cocktail Festival: April 25th-29th
- Whiskey, tequila, and rum! Oh my! The 5th annual Nashville Cocktail Festival is certainly worth the price of admission, where tickets get you unlimited cocktails at three events over the course of three days. An event of particular intrigue would be the Little Book Whiskey Dinner, where Freddie Noe, son of Jim Beam master distiller and eighth generation Beam family member, will be unveiling Little Book, his first product release. This event will include whiskey cocktails and dinner.
