The Green Wagon Summer Block Party

The first time I ever went into the Green Wagon I was approached by an employee who simply told me “you can eat everything in this store”. At that moment I was holding a bar of soap.

What can I say, the Green Wagon is cool like that. Apparently the soap wouldn’t have tasted good, but all of their products are made with all natural ingredients so you don’t have to feel weird about how what you’re brushing your teeth with might make you violently ill if you ingest it by accident.

But I’m not writing to tell you about the Green Wagon. Nothing in the Green Wagon is free (I don’t think). What I’m here to talk to you about is the immensely awesome block party they’re hosting this Saturday from noon-10pm.

As you can see on the poster, there will be local food trucks, local bands, local vendors, local beers, kid friendly stuff, and an edible landscaping workshop. The workshop will start at noon and will teach about 3 different styles of edible landscape gardening. There will even be stuff for your pup. The awesomely named Spoil Me S’mo will be handing out free treats to your furry friends, so don’t feel like you need to leave them at home!

Food trucks, music, dogs, and beer? Sounds like the perfect festival. Not only will Band Candy Company and the Grilled Cheeserie be there, Mas Tacos will be making an appearance! Of course there will be so much more in terms of food, so if you like neither grilled cheese nor amazing tacos I’m sure there will be something to satisfy your taste buds.

Now to talk about the music. After some digging I found a little something I like to call a lineup. Here it is:

  • 12:00 – Shelby Bottoms String Band
  • 1:00 – Derik Hultquist & Taylor Sorensen
  • 2:00 – Breaux Gargano
  • 3:00 – Nashville Rock Block
  • 4:00 – Max and The Wild Things
  • 5:00 – Blackfoot Gypsies
  • 6:00 – The Dead Towns
  • 7:00 – Oh Dang Lo Mein
  • 8:00 – Kat Smo
  • 9:00 – Brian Stone Cowboy

Man, that’s some mighty-fine looking music. It starts with a string band and ends with a cowboy. This really is Nashville, isn’t it? Ah, I’m just teasing, that’s a hell of a line-up. Green Wagon, consider me impressed.

One last thing, if you clicked this link you’ll see the option to RSVP. Just so you know, you do NOT have to RSVP, but you most definetly should, because everyone who does will be entered to win a $25 Green Wagon gift card. Just remember, even though you totally can eat anything you buy there, I would suggest using their products as they were intended to be used.

I’ll see you all Saturday!
