Girl's Getaway Weekend in Nashville
Whatever time of year you plan a visit Nashville, there's likely to be a music, beer, or food festival happening. However, fall is prime for music festivals, the most well-known of which is the Country Music Association Festival. A four-day musical extravaganza in downtown, the festival attracts more than 160,000 fans and 200 artists, who perform free concerts and do autograph signings. A notable newcomer to the fall festival lineup in 2013 is Zac Brown Band's Southern Ground Music & Food Festival (Sept. 21-22), which brings together some of the group's favorite musicians — Gregg Allman, Alan Jackson, and David Gray among them — plus excellent food and craft vendors.
Summer is packed with festivals, too. Nashville puts on quite a patriotic party in July with its Music City July 4th. The event spans three days of live music, including a spectacular fireworks display set to live music of the Nashville Symphony. Later in the summer, the Tomato Arts Festival (Aug. 10) is a locals' favorite; the free event draws about 18,000 people to celebrate the tomato, many of whom come in costume.
