Did you feel that? The temperature may have reached the 80s this past weekend but yesterday Nashville finally dropped into boot-friendly temperatures! With the heat retreating at last, we can don our favorite scarves, grab a pumpkin flavored treat, and check out the best events of fall in Nashville!
Through October 31
Artober is a month-long celebration of the arts in Music City. Nearly 200 arts organizations offer special events in October, including visual and performing arts, music, crafts, film, and more. Visit the Artober website for a full schedule of events in theatre, music, art and dance.
Family Friendly Halloween Fun
Ghouls at Grassmere is full of family fun with a Trick or Treat Trail, Monster Lab, Monsterpiece Theatre, Children’s Costume Parade, Carn-Evil, Scary-Go-Round, Haunted Hayride, and more October 18-20 and 24-27 at the Nashville Zoo.
Take a Spooky Tour
Friends and family who aren’t easily frightened will enjoy Nashville Ghost Tours - offering the Haunted Downtown Nashville Tour, Haunted Tavern Tours, and Nashville Hearse Tours to sufficiently scare you as you learn about Nashville’s history, local legends, and hear some really great ghost stories. Or head a little south of town for the Haunted Franklin Tour from Franklin On Foot. Hear about the spirits of downtown Franklin – departed socialites, Confederate soldiers, spies, and even a dog!
LIGHT at Cheekwood
After November 10, the lights will be out at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. Make sure you stop by and see Bruce Munro’s LIGHT exhibition Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays until 11:00 pm before then!
