Family travel to Nashville is always filled with free music, you just can’t escape it. Now Regions Bank is adding the fun by providing monthly free fun at area attractions. The family friendly favorites are highlighted below.
March: “Regions Free Days at Cheekwood” on Saturday, March 27 from 9:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, March 28 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Cheekwood may not be at its colorful height in early Spring but it is still a great place for families to explore. Most elementary aged children will probably be bored with the art museum main house. Instead, spend your time exploring the gardens and sculpture trail and bridge that surround the house the Maxwell House Coffee built. Be on the lookout for deer that roam the grounds!
April: “Regions Free Day at Nashville Children’s Theatre: Charlotte’s Web” on Friday, April 23 at 6:30 p.m. Bring the whole family to Nashville for a free performance of Charlotte’s Web. This classic tale of a pig finding its place in the world is always a hit with kids. Tickets are available to only the first 500 to order due to the size of the auditorium.
July and August: “Regions Free Days of Big Band” every Saturday evening in July and August. Dates include July 10, 17, 24, and 31 and August 7, 14, 21, and 28.
Centennial Park in West End comes alive with the sound of big band music. Kids love the upbeat music with the strong brass and percussion sounds. Bring the whole family and a picnic dinner and dance the summer night away!
September: “Regions Free Day at Adventure Science Center” on Sunday, Sept. 12 from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
I actually recommend avoiding the Adventure Science Center on free days because when it is free it is uncomfortably crowded. If you want to enjoy the Adventure Science Center, go on Saturday September 11 and avoid the normal weekend crowd that will descend on Sunday.
October: “Regions Free Day of Music” at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
The Schermerhorn Symphony Center in downtown comes alive with multiple stages providing free music all day long. Your family can experience the Grammy winning Nashville Symphony, chamber orchestras, show choirs (think Fox’s “Glee”), and more. The schedule usually comes out in late Summer so you’ll have time to pick your favorite family events.
December: “Regions Free Day of Holiday Magic” on Dec. 15.
The spectacular Nashville Ballet will perform their interpretation of the Christmas classic “The Nutcracker.” This ballet will entrance both young boys and girls as rats rule and sugar plums dance.
