4th of July Activities in Nashville




The 4th of July is right around the corner! Heve you made your July 4 plans yet? Fortunately, there are many patriotic celebrations and events to chose from around Nashville and Middle Tennessee. As a Nashville native, I have had the pleasure to attend most of them over the years.
Let Freedom Sing Spectacular – The annual Let Freedom Sing Spectacular at Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville is Middle Tennessee’s largest 4th of July celebration and is said to be the third largest 4th of July fireworks display in the country. Country artists Wynonna will headline this year’s Let Freedom Sing event. The 4th of July festivities start downtown at noon and continue all day, with the fireworks display starting at dark (around 9:00pm).
4th of July Block Party – One way to enjoy the Let Freedom Sing Spectacular at Riverfront Park without fighting the crowds is to watch the fireworks across the river at First Church of the Nazarene. First Church of the Nazarene holds a 4th of July Block Party every year, and you can see the downtown fireworks spectacular easily from the church parking lot while enjoying the games, beverages and entertainment at the Block Party.
In God We Trust – The Nashville Choir presents “In God We Trust” on Saturday, July 4, 2009, at 7PM. Performances will begin at 5PM in the Nashville Farmers’ Market Food Court Stage located at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in Nashville, Tennessee. “In God We Trust” celebrates America’s heritage and commemorates the birth of our nation. The free event features the “In God We Trust” Choir, Season Six American Idol Finalist Phil Stacey, Soul Choir and guest directors, arrangers and composers including: David Clydesdale, Phillip Keveren, Tom Howard and Joe Fitzpatrick.

Fireworks Extravaganza at Nashville Shores – The annual Shores & Stripes event at Nashville Shores runs the entire 4th of July weekend and includes the Annual Boat Parade and a beach concert, culminating in the annual Fireworks Extravaganza. After 5:00 pm on Friday, July 3, families can enjoy two hours of the water park, a beach concert, the fireworks display, and an after-hours Freedom Party for just $20 a car.
Brentwood 4th of July Celebration – I grew up attending the Brentwood 4th of July Celebration The free celebration with The Kadillacs takes place at the Eddy Arnold Amphitheater in Brentwood’s Crockett Park from 7:00 PM – 10:30 PM. The Firework Show begins at 9:15 pm.
Franklin on the 4th Celebration – The Annual Franklin on the 4th celebration is a patriotic event featuring antique cars, a children’s parade, and live music from local artists. This year marks the 14th Annual Franklin on the 4th celebration held in Franklin’s Historic Downtown.
