Top Picks for Happenings in Nashville this June!

There are so many wonderful ways to spend the early days of summer here in Nashville! Here are the events at the top of our list. We’ll see you there!

 

Eat, Drink and Be Merry: June 4th

On June 4th, a group of Nashville’s most revered restaurants will donate a percentage of their sales to The Land Trust of Tennessee, an organization dedicated to keeping farmland protected and our state more green. Nashville continues to have a seat at the table, so to speak, in the national food scene, and this first-time event promotes positive change through food activism. The farm-to-table movement begins at the farm, so protecting the land is paramount to its success. Participating restaurants include: Capitol Grille, Provence Bakery, Rolf & Daughters, Miel, The Mad Platter, Sunset Grille, Burger Up, Sloco, Lockeland Table, Marche, Pharmacy Burger, Porter Road Butchers, The Bloomy Rind, Más Tacos Por Favor, Chago’s Cantina, The Stone Fox, Las Paletas, Pub5, Fat Bottom Brewery, Buttermilk Road Private Supper Club hosted by Arnold’s Country Kitchen, Joe Natural’s Farm & Cafe, Bagel Face, Paradise Park. eatgreentennessee.com

Movies in the Park: Every Thursday in June

The organizers of movies in the park made a wise decision when they decided to move the event to Elmington Park this year. While I am a huge fan of the past two venues, Centennial Park and Percy Warner, the parking can be confusing and limited. In Elmington Park, parking is much easier. You’ll be able to access parking at West End Middle School since school’s out for the summer in addition to the park’s designated parking and side streets. And, as a ton of families live in the neighborhoods surrounding Elmington Park, the need for a car moot for many. Yeah!

The series kicks off in June and runs every Thursday throughout the month. Movies in the Park is brought to you by the Nashville Scene with the support of the Parks and Recreation Department.

The line-up was recently announced:

  • June 6 – Brave
  • June 13 – Madagascar 3
  • June 20 – Life of Pi
  • June 27 – Pitch Perfect

Pack a cooler and grab blanket or chair for a perfect evening of family fun. www.nowplayingnashville.com

The Nashville International Puppet Festival: June 20-22

In case you are not aware, it’s a huge coup for our city to host a festival of this caliber! The Nashville Public Library hosted Nashville’s first international puppet festival in 2008, which attracted more than 18,000 people. This year’s festival will be even better with a the street surrounding the library transformed into a family-friendly street fair. In addition, the Puppet Festival Parade will wind down Church Street through the Arts District and feature performers with stilts, unicycles, floats, vintage cars and puppets. While the events are free and open to the public, you must reserve your tickets NOW. Click here to reserve.

In addition to the festival, the library will hold two special events in collaboration with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and TPAC. The first event is Thursday, June 20, and will feature the debut performance of Wishing Chair Productions’ String City: Nashville’s Tradition of Music and Puppetry at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. On Saturday, June 22, TPAC will present a performance by world renowned puppeteer Phillip Huber. Known for his work with marionettes in Being John Malkovich and in Disney’s Oz, The Great and Powerful, Huber will perform Suspended Animation. If you’re not a kid, don’t let this deter you. The Puppet Festival appeals to all ages. nashvillepubliclibrary.org/puppetfestival

Nashville Dancin': Thursday Nights Between June 13th – August 1st

Not only will you be wowed by the music lineup, some of our favorite food trucks will be there–The Grilled Cheeserie, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and Hoss’ Loaded Burgers.

LIGHT: Bruce Munro at Cheekwood: Open now through November

Insiders tell us that the Bruce Munro exhibit at Cheekwood is one of the most impressive events to ever come to Nashville. Not only is it the second-ever North American exhibition, it is simply stunning as you will experience hundreds of mile of glowing optic fiber. The grounds of Cheekwood have been transformed into a dream-like landscape. At the center of the exhibition is the Field of Light, which captivates with a landscape of 20,000 lighted glass spheres, each rising from the ground of a slender stem. We’ve seen this exhibit and truly it will leave you speechless.

Cheekwood is offering extended hours on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings until 11 p.m. to present this grand-scale exhibition in its most stunning state: under the night sky. For more information: click here
