There’s always something entertaining going on in Music City, but dang it can get expensive to have lots of fun. Sometimes you need to figure out how to party on the cheap -- or even better, gratis. Here’s a list of things that will tickle your fancy without draining your wallet of a single buck, if you play your cards right.
1. Party in the park at Musicians Corner
After a few years of pop-up status, Musicians Corner has finally earned a permanent location in the southwest corner of Centennial Park near West End. Families frolic while enjoying food and drink from tents and trucks as multiple bands perform on the center stage on Saturdays during the spring and summer. Bring a blanket and get comfortable.
Every first Saturday of the month, art galleries across Downtown Nashville open their doors for free. And while they’re not as regular, there are also no-fee admission days and nights at galleries in neighborhoods like Wedgewood/Houston, Germantown, East Nashville, and Franklin, if you’re so inclined.
About once a month, the Nashville astronomy group meets at various parks across middle Tennessee to set up their telescopes and gaze at the night sky. And when the path of the total solar eclipse passes over Nashville on August 21, 2017, you can expect these enthusiasts to lose their minds.
