New to town? Old to town? Looking for something fun to do in Nashville? We’ve got you covered.
Tonight (Thursday September 1st) the Nashville Sounds play their final regular season game against the Iowa Cubs over at First Tennessee Park. Game starts at 6:35pm and tickets range from $10-$75.
Tonight also kicks off Live On The Green. This festival (which has been going on for several weeks now) is sadly coming to a close, BUT! For the next three days, you can catch 25 different acts on three different stages outside in Public Square (located in front of the Metro Courthouse). Music is from 5:30-11pm on Thursday, 5pm-11pm on Friday, and 1pm-11pm on Saturday. Headliners this weekend include Young the Giant, Band of Horses, and Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals. The best part about it? It’s all free! $5 parking is available in the Metro Courthouse parking garage and at Nissan Stadium.

Friday night (8pm-1am) the “Back to the Bridge” Mixer will take place on the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge. This event is a kick-off party for the Tennessee State University vs. Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions football game that will take place at Nissan Stadium on Saturday September 3rd. It’s $15-$20 and the event will include live music, dancing, and food and drink vendors.
Saturday gives you some options. There is an Art Crawl from 6pm-9pm downtown. If you’re itching to hear some tasty fiddle playing, the Grand Master Fiddler Championship is happening down at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
To close out the weekend, the third annual Rewind Music Festival will take place at Riverfront Park on Sunday September 4th. This is the largest celebration of old school music in Music City and features Pastor Troy, Adina Howard, Troop, Lenny Williams, Zapp Band, Bruh Man (Reginald Ballard) and DJ Don Juan. Top it off with some tasty food and it looks to make for a lovely Sunday!
And, let’s be honest with each other, this isn’t even half of what’s going on this weekend in Nashville, but it’s a pretty good start. Get out there! Have some fun! Be safe, friends!
