A Nearly Native’s Guide to This Weekend (9/19 – 9/21)

Proceed to this weekend’s guide with caution: between Americanafest, Beerfest, and Music City Food + Wine Fest you may just explode with excitement. What to do?!

Just take a deep breath and plan your weekend accordingly. Happy Friday y’all!

NOTE: Americanafest takes over Nashville this weekend at several venues and several times. All-access passes to all shows at each venue for all four nights are $50 (wristbands). For more info CLICK HERE.
