Among the many fall activities that locals love are the community’s many festivals. Here are some of the best fall festivals in Nashville that you won’t want to miss.
Fall Fest at the Hermitage
Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, Home of the People’s President, is a favorite local attraction, and on October 6 and 7 it will come alive with art, music and, of course, history during the fifth annual Fall Fest. Check out vendor booths for handcrafted goods from around the region, try your hand at historic instruments and other history-based activities, or simply sit back and enjoy the live music all weekend long. There will be plenty of pumpkins to buy as well!
El Dia de los Muertos
On Saturday, October 27, celebrate Latin American culture at El Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, hosted at Cheekwood Estate and Gardens. The colorful decorations and costumes, including sugar skull masks, and the music of the people of Mexico will bring a festive atmosphere to the gardens. Be sure to come hungry, because the day will include plenty of authentic cuisine! This is a cultural experience you are sure to remember.
Southern Festival of Books
Not all fall festivals in Nashville are focused on pumpkins and fall foliage. The Southern Festival of Books: A Celebration of the Written Word, focuses on books and authors. Over 200 writers from across the nation will come to the three-day festival to participate in readings, book signings and panel discussions. There are writers from all genres, so you are certain to find one to fit your favorite style of reading. This year the festival will be October 12 through October 14.
