10 Things We're Excited to Do in Nashville This Summer

Nashville just seems to get bigger and bigger every year, and we're proud to say that we're based in such a creative, exciting place. Summer is an especially great time to be in Nashville, so whether you live here too or you're planning a visit, here's where you can find us this summer. 

  • Musician's Corner. On Saturday afternoons, we like to grab a coffee and a blanket and head over to Centennial Park for Musician's Corner, a live music series that features some of the best musicians in the city.
  • Nashville Food & Wine Festival. Last year, we were lucky enough to create a backdrop for the Williams-Sonoma tent at the city's most coveted food festival. It's a pricey one, but if you're serious about your food, we can vouch that it's worth it to taste all of the city's best dishes in one place. 
  • Arrington Vineyards. There's nothing better than grabbing a $12 bottle of wine, spreading a blanket out on the hillside at Arrington and hanging out with your friends. 
  • Nashville Sounds Games. The new-and-improved baseball stadium is one of the coolest places to hang out in the warmer months, whether you're a baseball fan or not. 
  • Porter Flea. We mention this bi-annual market all the time on the blog, and for good reason. It draws all of Nashville's best makers together for a super fun weekend of shopping, food and meeting new people. 
  • Canoeing on the Harpeth. If you're looking for something outdoorsy to do this summer, rent a canoe and paddle down the Harpeth (adult beverages optional). 
  • Tomato Art Fest. Check out this huge summer festival in East Nashville, which features art, music and some pretty hilarious tomato costumes. 
  • Live on the Green. This annual festival is a great way to wrap up the summer, because it draws huge acts and huge crowds for the last few weekends before fall hits. Best of all, it's free! 
  • The Nashville Flea Market. It's always hot and sweaty, but it's worth it when you find that perfect antique chair or pair of leather boots.
  • The Rooftop at LA Jackson. If you're feeling fancy, LA Jackson, the rooftop bar at the new Thompson Hotel, is quickly becoming one of our favorite outdoor drinking spots.
