If the arrival of Pumpkin Spice Lattes hasn’t tipped you off that Fall is just around the corner, we’re here to let you know that you only have a few more weeks left of Nashville Summer. Granted, Autumn in the South tends to be short and sweet, but even though the heat will be sticking around for awhile longer, these fun events will not! Here are a few more things to do in Music City before Summer comes to a close on September 23rd:
SEE AN OUTDOOR MOVIE - Monday, September 16th
We’ve had so many thunderstorms this Summer, that several of Cinema by JW’s events have been rescheduled to later dates. There’s one last showing of Sleepless in Seattle on Monday, September 16th! The movie starts at sundown on the JW lawn, and tickets are free on Eventbrite. Enjoy popcorn and s’mores on a cozy plaid blanket beneath the city lights and stars!
GRAZE THE FOOD TRUCKS ON DEADERICK - Thursday, September 19th
Street Eats is a weekly food truck feast that lines Deaderick Street between 4th and 5th Avenues. Up to 20 local food trucks will serve a variety of fares from 11am-2pm, so take a mid-day break to go chow down with your Nashville neighbors!
CATCH SOME TUNES AT CENTENNIAL - Thursday, September 19th
Musicians Corner hosts September Sundown every Thursday in Centennial Park from 5-9pm. This weekly series showcases local artisans, food trucks, and, of course--musicians. The September 19th lineup includes Dylan LeBlanc, Super Doppler, Pet Envy, Amber Woodhouse, and Amilia K Spicer.
GET THEE TO THE THEATER (OR PARK) - Sunday, September 22nd
The Nashville Shakespeare Festival hosts their Shakespeare in the Park series every year, and this Summer’s last performance will be The Tempest, followed by Pericles. Food and drink vendors open at 5:45pm, and the show begins at 7pm on Sunday, September 22nd at oneC1TY. Summer Shakespeare is always free, but donations are encouraged.
Crystal moved to Nashville in 2009, long enough ago to remember being able to parallel park on Broadway on a Friday night. When she's not slinging ink about local flair for the Batch Blog, she enjoys punny crosswords, long naps, making handmade pasta, hiking Tennessee's waterfalls, not sharing pizza, and riding around on her cherry-red moped, "Rosie" (named for Betty White's character on the Golden Girls). She lives downtown with her Pomeranian pup, Tanner, who joins her for "Bark in the Park" baseball nights, Sunday strolls through Germantown, and Schitt's Creek marathons on the couch. She hates blue cheese and podcasts, and has never once figured out how to use a public bus system. Her hopes and dreams for the future include living in Europe, finally using the word "prolific" correctly, and having a pet hedgehog named Sedgewick.
