What’s There to Do in Nashville? MARCH

As a Nashville native, I’ve been asked this question a lot. Nashville offers so many great events in music, art, culture, and annual festivals that I’ve decided to highlight monthly events here. Get out and do something different, you’ll be happy you did!

MARCH

ART:

39 Steps

Throughout the month…Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC), 505 Deaderick Street, Nashville, TN / Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Step, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!

ART AFTER HOURS

KEM has added the Grammy-nominated artist and iconic soul superstar Musiq Soulchild as a Special Guest for this tour. Musiq alongside Ledisi, will replace the previously mentioned El DeBarge for this tour. El DeBarge will not be on tour, due to personal reasons.

Mainstreet Brew Fest

Historic Downtown Franklin celebrates St. Patrick’s Day early on Saturday, March 12th with the Franklin Main Street Brew Fest. Tickets are $35 and include tastings of more than 50 beers in the Main Street shops from 6 to 9 p.m. Main Street is closed to vehicle traffic but free and open to pedestrian traffic with most shops and restaurants open throughout the event.

 Mixology

One of my personal faves! Mixology will be held at the Country Music Hall of Fame this year on March 25th (6pm-10pm). Featuring music, art, fashion, cocktails, and cuisine, this event also helps different charities by donating a portion of the proceeds. One of the coolest parts…you get to choose which charity you want your money to go to!

All Love…All the Time
