Full Moon Pickin' Party

Full Moon Pickin’ Parties – Celebrating 17 years of mighty fine bluegrass!

Friends of Warner Parks presents the 17th annual season of Full Moon Pickin’ Parties running May through October 2017. The May lineup will feature Lonnie Jones & Hard Drive, Back 80 Bluegrass Band, and Brother & The Hayes.

These laid-back, family-friendly fundraisers feature Middle Tennessee’s finest bluegrass music under the light of a full moon. Musicians and music lovers alike are invited to enjoy this beloved Nashville tradition in one of its most beautiful settings: Warner Parks. Bluegrass and roots pickers jam in circles under the trees and around the grounds, while three headlining acts perform on the main stage.  Many thanks to our 2017 Top Fiddle sponsors Bridgestone and Bridgestone Americas Trust Fund. Other generous Sponsors/Partners include Lightning 100, NowPlayingNashville, DET Distributing, Metro Nashville Parks & Recreation, JC’s Production Services, The Crichton Group, Ensworth, Highwoods Properties, Piedmont Natural Gas, CBRE & MoonPie.

Food is available for purchase, and water, soft drinks, and up to four beers (for adults 21 and up) are included with admission. Glass, large coolers, and alcohol may not be brought into the event. Limited seating is available so we recommend bringing blankets or camping chairs. Dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on a leash no longer than six feet in length at all times. Bags and instrument cases are subject to search.

Funds raised by ticket sales will go directly back into the Warner Parks. Your support will help protect and preserve the parks and provide educational programming at the Warner Park Nature Center, benefiting park visitors of all ages.
