Living in the middle of it everyday, it's easy to forget that we live in a bustling, vibrant city. There's always something to do. You can't miss the big events like CMA Fest, Bonnaroo, or the Music City Marathon – if only because of the added traffic congestion. But it can be easy to miss some of the great stuff that's happening every day! Here are a few events coming up you need on your calendar!


It's what we're known for, and it's in our blood. No matter where you look, there's somebody playing - songwriter circles, open mics, touring acts, or big names filling up Bridgestone. Whether it's up-and-comers or headliners, it's easy to find a show any day of the week. That said, it can get a little overwhelming sometimes, and it's easy to forget just how much is out there.

  • Jan. 27 - The Music of David Bowie with the Nashville Symphony - Schmerhorn Symphony

  • Feb. 11 - Martina McBride - The Ryman

  • Mar. 18 - Reverend Horton Heat - Mercy Lounge

  • Mar. 26 - Peter Frampton Raw: An Acoustic Tour - Schermerhorn Symphony

  • Apr. 25 - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Bridgestone Arena

It's almost a joke to try and pick out great shows in the area, because there's just so much going on!


We might be known for music, but Nashville can cut up with the best of them. Zanies is a constant for locals and national big names, while TPAC and the Ryman host sold out shows for the likes of Jim Gaffigan, Carol Burnett, and Lewis Black.

  • Feb. 8 – Kathleen Madigan – Zanie's Comedy Club

  • Feb. 25 - Gabriel "Fluffy"Iglesias – TPAC, Andrew Jackson Hall

  • Mar. 17 – Carol Burnett – The Ryman

  • Apr. 19 – Patton Oswalt – The Ryman

  • Apr. 23 – Larry The Cable Guy – The Ryman

If none of these work for you, Belcourt Taps hosts recurring open mike nights, as do several of the bars and breweries in the area. If you're thinking of getting on stage, Third Coast Comedy Club hosts workshops for you to hone your funny bone.

Food and Drink

Biscuits and gravy, hot chicken, fine bourbon... there are some tastes that are distinctly southern and Nashville, but that's not all we have to offer! As a city, we turn it out for good grub. Check out some of these upcoming festivals that might just be the final straw for your New Years Resolution.

  • Feb. 7 - Tennessee Flavors - Nashville State Community College

  • Mar. 26 - Nashville Chili Festival - Basement East

  • Apr. 8 - East Nashville Beer Festival - East Park

  • Apr. 27 - 30 - Music City Spirits andCocktail Festival - East Pavilion

Sports and Outdoor

The south loves it's football, and you can bet there's going to be tailgating at every Titans, Blue Raiders, or Vols game. We also have a fantastic hockey team – and if you've never been to a Preds game, you don't know what you're missing. Those are easy to find though, so I wanted to offer a few lesser known events coming up.

  • Mar. 11 - 2017 Shamrock Run 5k and 10k - Calvin Short Football Field in Gallatin

  • Mar. 18 - Cheekwood in Bloom - Cheekwood Gardens

  • Apr. 1 - Nashville Rollergirls Season Opener - Nashville Fairgrounds

  • Apr. 29 - The 5k Foam Fest Obstacle Run - Wooly's Off Road in Lynnville

Arts and Community

Last but not least, we have the events and festivals that show off the unique talents of our citizens. This is a great way to get out and explore less known aspects of Nashville, and seem communities and neighborhoods you might not normally get a chance to.

  • Feb. 4 - Fashion for a Fraction: Boutique Warehouse Sale – Rockettown

  • Apr. 1 - Crafty Nashville: Arts and Crafts Fair - Track One

  • Apr. 1 - Edgehill Rocks: Music, Art, and Food - Edgehill Village

  • Apr. 8 - Nashville Cherry Blossom Festival – Public Square Park
