(CANCELLED) Cornelia Fort Pickin' Party

Presented by Good Neighbor Festivals at Cornelia Fort Airpark

Cornelia Fort Pickin’ Party | September

The Cornelia Fort Pickin’ Party combines the tastes and talents of East Nashville to help preserve one of the city’s most unique landmarks, the Cornelia Fort AirPark. The music series will continue once a month offering music from area bluegrass bands, craft beer and fine local foods.

Musicians are encouraged to bring banjos, fiddles, guitars, dobros and mandolins to gather in groups and play the night away (and bringing your instrument with you gets you a free drink ticket).

Live Music: TBA
