We’re getting into the summer season, which means weekends in Nashville are about to get BUSY. Starting NOW. Check out these crazy free events this Saturday.
Tour de Fat in Centennial Park – 10am-3:30pm
Yet again, New Belgium Brewing is bringing Tour de Fat to Nashville. As you might have guessed by the name, it is about bicycles, and in a big way. One person will be getting a free bike. But they have to trade in their car and promise not to drive a car for a year. If your car sucks and you never have to leave your neighborhood or venture out into the burbs this might be a good idea.
There’s plenty of fun for those not looking for a bike trade too. At 10am there will be a big ‘ol bike parade (registration is at 9am), there will be live music, a side show, more bike rides, and whatnot. You can read more about it here.
Green Wagon Summer Block Party – 12pm-10pm
For the second year now the Green Wagon in East Nashville is hosting a summer block party! The part goes from noon to 10pm and will feature live music from Blackfoot Gypsies, Oh Dang Lo Mein, Denny and the Jets, and more, as well as local beers, food, and general East Side fun.
Musicians Corner – 3pm-6pm
As Tour de Fat is finishing up Musicians Corner will just be starting! This week’s lineup is pretty sweet and will feature performances by Megan McCormick, Jill Andrews, Chuck Mead, and Jim Lauderdale. As usual, there will be fun kids stuff, food, a beer garden, and more.
Art Crawl in the Arcade – 6-10pm
It’s the first Saturday of the month, which means that art galleries downtown will be open late and serving free wine. It’s pretty awesome.
25 Cent Sidewalk Sale at The Great Escape – 8am-5pm
Thousands of 35 cent CDs, Comics, LPs, Toys, Movies, and more. And everything in the store is 25% off! It’s amazing. Amazing.
