Rescheduled Spring 2020 Events in Nashville

While many Spring 2020 events in Nashville were cancelled, some have been rescheduled for later in the year. You’ll find those new dates below. For a look at how Nashville is rebounding from COVID-19, find answers here

Chihuly at Cheekwood

Cheekwood’s gardens and outdoor installations have reopened. Ten years ago, Nashville went nuts over Dan Chihuly’s mesmerizing glass installations all around the Cheekwood gardens and grounds. That was a wonderland lit for night viewing. The artist’s new spring exhibit is stunning during the day and magical at night with installations around the grounds and pedestal works in the mansion.

Nashville Fashion Week

AUGUST 4-8. Get over the stereotypes of Nashville fashion being limited to cowboy boots, rhinestones and fringe. There are some cutting edge designers here and an impressive roster of guests who will fill your week with the stunning and sassy.

August 8. Omni Hotel. A lovely way to spend a Saturday, this one-day event will bring together more than 50 wineries, 20 local restaurants and 10 breweries. Mini-seminaries will enhance your culinary knowledge and you can shop an Artisan Market featuring local producers. And, of course, they will be live music. Admission ranges from $40-135.

Record Store Day(s)

The new plan is to have three Record Store Days: August 29, September 26 and October 24. This has begun a big deal in Nashville and gets bigger every year. Among its chief promoters is Jack White whose Third Man Records always plans a little something special. But it’s just one of more than a dozen area stores celebrating vinyl.

Bonnaroo 2020

Now scheduled for September 24-27, temps should be lower but the line-up of artists is still scorching. Among the 70+ performers: TOOL, Lizzo, Miley Cyrus, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Bassnectar, Flogging Molly, Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend.

Tin Pan South

OCTOBER 20-24 Our first major spring event in live music, the world’s largest gathering of songwriters covering a variety of genres. Ten official venues will host 100+ shows featuring both legends and up-and-comers. Many other bars and clubs will be unofficially joining in the celebration. Passes available for purchase starting February 25. Want to amp up your excitement? Watch the terrific documentary “It All Begins With A Song” online free.

SATURDAY, NOV. 21. Typically 30,000 runners show up in springtime but, with a late fall date, the crowds will likely be smaller. Much of the rest is the same: You’ll trek through some of our most interesting neighborhoods, cheered on by locals on the sidewalks. The weekend kicks off with a Health & Fitness Expo on Thursday and Friday where you can pick up tips, swag and your registration materials. On Saturday morning, you’ll hit the road, cruising past ten stages of live music route and the day comes to a close with a big concert. Visitors tell us we’re among the best hosts in the country. Bonus: it overlaps the dates for Tin Pan South.

 

Musicians Corner

Musicians Corner concert in Centennial Park, Nashville

CANCELLED WITH HOPES OF RETURNING IN THE FALL. This free concert series, held in Centennial Park on Friday and Saturday afternoons/evenings, grows in popularity each year with good reason. An eclectic line-up of artists. Kidsville activity zone. Food trucks. A beer garden. Who’s performing? An announcement is forthcoming.
