Spring in Nashville is a truly magical time, not only because of the magnificent show that nature puts on as the flowers bloom, the birds sing, and the weather is nice and warm, but also because the whole city comes alive with music, food, fashion, and so many activities to choose from.
Here are a few of the highlights to check out during spring in Nashville:
As you would expect from Music City, Nashville is booming with music festivals, concerts, and events where you can experience the greatest live music scene in the world.
For starters, there is the Edgehill Rocks celebration on Nashville’s historic Edgehill neighborhood, which is a great way to immerse yourself in this community’s joyful expression. There is great food, art, and live music all day long.
Then there is the world’s largest gathering of singers and songwriters, the Tin Pan South Festival, which features more than 350 artists and groups performing over 90 shows in 10 venues around the city. This festival usually takes place in late March or early April.
If you’d like to take some music home then don’t miss your chance to visit Nashville’s most popular record stores on Record Store Day, April 18. In addition to getting great deals, there are also stores that host live music events.
