Summer in Music City offers an endless array of music, food, arts, family, and outdoor activities for the perfect summer vacation in Nashville, TN. Nashville's growing and new restaurants, new museums, and new festivals are popping up everywhere and we mean EVERYWHERE. The good news is that means there's even more to entertain your eyes, ears, and taste buds in Music City. From its very beginnings, Nashville grew from a foundation built on music. Music has been the common thread connecting the life and soul of the city and its people. And visitors have ventured here to experience the music that weaves such a fundamental pattern in its cultural, business and social fabric.
The first around-the-world tour by a musical act was by the Fisk Jubilee Singers from Nashville’s Fisk University. Their efforts helped fund the school’s mission of educating freed slaves after the Civil War – and also put Nashville on the map as a global music center. In fact, upon playing for the Queen of England, the queen stated the Fisk Jubilee Singers must come from the “Music City.” Nashville has also become a hub for pop, rock, jazz, bluegrass, country, Americana, classical, contemporary Christian, blues, and soul music. Rolling Stone recently gave Nashville the title of “Best Music Scene.”
Nashville’s connection to music is unequaled, and its reputation as Music City has been consistently proven for over 200 years. Welcome to the city where music is written, recorded and performed every single day. Welcome to Music City… Nashville Music City.
Riverfront Park Nashville is arguably 'Music City's' favorite outdoor entertainment venue. Connecting the Cumberland River to the city's downtown area, Riverfront Park Nashville also serves as home to the Historic Fort Nashborough. The park’s grassy banks are also the ideal location from which to wave hello to passengers on board the General Jackson Showboat.
The Riverfront Park schedule is especially busy during the summer months, when amongst other activities, the outdoor venue offers people the opportunity to enjoy the many various performances taking place upon a floating stage in the middle of the Cumberland River. Thousands more locals and visitors alike flock to the Riverfront Park Nashville throughout the year, eager to experience one or more of its many festivals, concerts, fireworks and other special events.
