Christmastime in Nashville Post #2

By: Matt Niehoff

Tag: Holidays

My first post on Christmastime in Nashville can be found here, which shares my favorite place to catch the most beautiful Christmas lights in town, along with some other ideas to enjoy the season!  Now, let's discuss even more fun ideas that will help get you in the holiday spirit around Nash!



Christ Church Christmas Concert
Only ten bucks will get you a ticket to one of my favorite events of the Christmas season.  Held at Christ Church in south Nashville, you will experience their choir and backed by a full orchestra.  Christmas Tunes + Choir + Orchestra = Pure Holiday Goodness.

Nashville Christmas Parade
Pretty self explanatory, the 60th annual parade will be held December 7th, starting with our Mayor lighting the city Christmas tree at 6:30pm, the parade following at 7:00.  Such a fun way to kick off the season!

Dickens of a Christmas in Historic Downtown Franklin
Downtown Franklin has always been one of my FAVORITE places to visit in the Nashville area, so, add a Christmas theme to the already historic and beautiful streetscape and I'm there!   Held December 14-15 in 2013, this free festival includes everything from horse-drawn carriage rides and candlelit Christmas caroling to crafts and sugar-plums.  LOVE. This.

Holiday at Cheekwood
Ya'll.  Cheekwood is absolutely gorgeous, especially this time of year.  The grounds will be decorated for the season, and the main house will be showcasing trees decorated with the theme 'Christmas in Color'.  Also, special events include Santa Saturdays, a holiday concert series, and an Adult Gingerbread Workshop that features adult beverages.  Ummm.. yes, please!

Historic East Nashville Home Tour
Being held December 7th and 8th this year, this is an amazing chance to check out some of Nashville's most beautiful architecture on the East side of town.  Tickets are only $10, and are available at the link above. I for one love, love, love historic homes, so don't miss this chance to peek inside some of the most beautiful ones in town!
