Did someone say, fall? It is undoubtedly one of the best times of the year and Nashville will of course have some cool little experiences to check out. With that said, Cheekwood will definitely be the move, especially if you are trying to get your family out of the house or looking for a cute date-night situation. Nashville’s only botanical garden is set to celebrate all things fall during their Cheekwood Harvest, a part of the estate and gardens’ year-round lineup of signature seasonal festivals. The unique six-week festival will offer activities and experiences designed to appeal to the littles, adults, and families alike.
Family Fun + Chill
Let’s start by saying every member of the family will have something to do. From pumpkin houses and patches to scarecrows and a Halloween Pooch Parade. Don’t just pick pumpkins, step into the two Pumpkin Houses and experience them! Plus, after taking a break last year due to the pandemic, scarecrows will be returning to the Turner Seasons Garden with a new theme: Favorite Artists. Walkthrough the pathway to the beloved trains exhibit and you might see Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, or even Salvador DalÍ along the way. This Cheekwood Harvest favorite is a hit with young and old alike, and you may even see and learn about an artist you didn’t know about before.
Beer Garden + More, Yes Please
Gather with friends to celebrate the arrival of fall at the Cheekwood Beer Garden – the only beer garden in an actual garden in Nashville! Every weekend, enjoy seasonal beers, specialty cocktails, wine & champagne, accompanied by live music. The Beer Garden will also be open during their Thursday Night Out along with Food Trucks from all across the city to check out.
Unique Culture-Driven Specialty Events
Get ready to feel like you have left Nashville and traveled to a really cool location outside your comfort zone. Cheekwood has curated an amazing lineup of multicultural experiences from the Japanese Moon Viewing, including a mochi pudding to the 22nd Annual El Día de los Muertos that includes traditional Mexico and Latin American music, dance, art, and cuisine. Plus, there will be several wellness programs taking place under Cheekwood’s natural beauty from yoga to meditation.
