If you’ve spend a lot of time at home or indoors this summer, it’s time grab some friends or family members and take advantage of the long summer days we have left. Planning adventures or attending events can get expensive, but luckily, there are plenty of free or affordable things to do around Nashville this summer that will definitely put a smile on everyone’s faces. Here are 7 fun things that we recommend.
- Big band dances: This July and August, head to Centennial Park on Saturday nights from 7:30-10pm for an evening of dancing and music.
- Jazz on the Cumberland: Explore this jazz concert series on various Sundays from 5:30-8pm.
- Tomato Art Fest: On August 10th and 11th, come enjoy this fun and family-friendly festival.
- Farmer’s markets: Explore various farmer’s markets in the area – including Nashville Farmers’ Market, Franklin Farmers Market, and Hip Donelson Farmer’s Market – for fresh food, produce and live music entertainment.
- Splash in Cumberland Park: Pack a picnic and head to Cumberland Park with the kids to enjoy the park’s “spray pad.” Walk the trails afterwards for some spectacular views.
- Live music at local wineries: Leave the kids at home and head to a local winery – like Arrington Vineyards, Sumner Crest Winery, or Beachaven Winery – to enjoy delicious wine alongside good music.
- Star parties: The Barnard-Seyfert Astronomical Society regularly hosts public star parties. This summer, head to Bells Bend Nature Park on July 20th or Bowie Nature Center on August 17th for a star party led by astronomers.
