How to celebrate the 4th of July this year In Nashville


Nashville sure knows how to throw a party and the 4th of July is arguably the biggest party held in the Music City. The parties at this time of the year are not confined to downtown, which is ordinarily Nashville’s party central. On the 4th of July, there are events and activities spread out across the city and if you don’t have any plans yet, the specialists at our limo service in Nashville have some great ideas you can consider for this year’s Independence Day celebration.
For all your transportation needs this 4th of July, we recommend booking our car service in Nashville. As usual, you can expect heavy traffic and crowded streets on this day. As much as everyone is within their right to head out and celebrate their independence, this can cause quite the inconvenience for anyone looking to spend quality time with their friends and family. As opposed to spending half your time navigating traffic and bumping shoulders trying to move through dense crowds, let our chauffeurs take the wheel as you and your family/friends seat back, enjoy the comfort a luxury vehicle, and truly focus on enjoying each other’s company as a professional safely and expeditiously transfers you to a location of your choosing.
Here are several exciting events scheduled to go down in Nashville this Independence Day. Have a great 4th of July. Viva!

Let Freedom Sing

Let Freedom Sing is scheduled for the 4th of July; this annual event is a series of adrenaline-filled concerts that features top performers on stages set up in the Riverfront Park. Fun fact: this is one of the biggest 4th of July events in the Southeast, which is itself a testament to the quality of performances you can expect to witness here. The event will kick off at 1 pm and continue till late in the evening, coming to an end in a spectacular firework display. The main stage will be located on 5th Avenue and Broadway; this stage will include a live DJ and live music performances from various artists.
Expect performances from Dylan Scott, Jessy Wilson, the Joe West Band, Mac McAnally, and winners of this year’s and last year’s Music City Mayhem. As the event is winding down in the evening, attendants are requested head towards the Cumberland Riverfront for a final treat.

Nashville's 4thof July Celebration and Fireworks

This is the treat. Head over to the Cumberland River after the Let Freedom Sing Concert for one of the largest fireworks displays in the Music City. The fireworks will be coordinated to the live sounds of Grammy Award-winning, Nashville Symphony, and the display is set to last well over 30 minutes.
Other performances at this point will be courtesy of Lady Antebellum, Lucie Silvas, Chris Janson, Shannon Sanders, and more. For the best views, we recommend taking a boat onto the Cumberland River, heading onto the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge, or setting up in East Park and the Adventure Science Center. These locations all fill up pretty fast on the 4th of July, so you may want to stake out a great spot early in the day. The event is that it is absolutely free and open to all; kids of all ages are also allowed.

The North 12th Street Pre-Party

The East Nashville district has adopted a unique tradition for the 3rd of July where they close off the North 12th Street between Calvin and Ordway for a block party; this year will mark the 17th annual 12th Street Pre-Party. Join hundreds of patriots in enjoying great music, scrumptious local dishes, and locally produced beers. This year’s entertainment line-up will include performers like the Keats, The Lonely Owls, Elle Macho, and Lynn Taylor & the Barflies.
For added incentive, all proceeds from the event are donated to local non-profit organizations doing work in Nashville and beyond. Organizations that have received donations in the past include Urban Green Lab, Nashville Repertory Theatre, Martha O’Bryan Center, the Adventure Science Center, and many more. Join the East Nashville community and thousands of regular attendees in this one-of-a-kind kick-off to Independence Day.

A Healthy Independence Day

Head on to downtown on the 4th of July and make your way to Public Square Park where you will begin your Music City 5Kand 10K road races. Tag your family and friends along and join other Nashville residents in an energized jog through the Music City. The jog will take you past some of the city’s most prominent landmarks and historical sites, which should give you a deeper appreciation of your freedom and enhance the significance of this glorious day.
Landmarks you can expect to spot along the way include the Music City Convention Center, the Performing Arts Center, and more. This event is open to participants of all ages and your leashed furry friends can take part in the fun as well. There will be refreshments at various checkpoints during the race and at the very end, every participant will receive a medal, a complimentary t-shirt, and a slice of apple pie. Stick around after the race and explore the family fun zone, which the kids are sure to enjoy. This is a great, healthy way to kick off your Independence Day before all the barbeque, beer, and fireworks take over.

Hot Chicken Festival

The Nashville Hot Chicken Festival was created back in 2007 and has been held on every Fourth of July since. This will be the 13th event of its kind and the festivities are set to take place in East Park. The event will begin with a fire truck parade at 10 am, leading up to the official event kickoff at 11 am. Here you will get to enjoy spicy chicken, cool beverages, a cooking contest, and live music entertainment by local bands throughout the day. Swing by East Park this Independence Day and sample Nashville’s diverse chicken recipes. As an added incentive, free samples will be provided to the first 500 visitors, so if you’re feeling thrifty you may want to arrive exceptionally early for this one.
