Nashville Fall Fun at The Hermitage
The autumn months are perfect for exploring the beautifully preserved grounds of Andrew Jackson's Hermitage: Home of the People's President. As the season changes and the leaves turn The Hermitage shows another side of its beauty. The Hermitage holds one of the nation's most fascinating stories of early 19th century from the western frontier to the White House. They are open daily offering self guided tours from 8:30am-5pm.
Nashville will come together at Fall Fest @ The Hermitage taking place October 6-7. It's a community event that showcases the art of local & regional artists. A sea of tents will be placed throughout the grounds that will host a variety of specialty foods, spirits, and the products of photography, basketry, ceramics, painting, jewelry, leather, and woodwork. We can't forget about the live music. From beginning to end, live music will fill the festival so you can dance around and explore. This event is perfect for children and adults alike to have a memorable historical, cultural, and unique experience.
Each year Fall Fest features a special community art project. This year, they are partnering with National Trust for Historic Preservation to create posters for This Place Matters, a campaign to bring awareness to the business, landmarks, and other special places that make our community great! To participate, they are asking people to decorate a poster and take a picture with it. Once you have a photo, you need to share it on socials using #ThisPlaceMatters and #HermitageFallFest18. They will present prizes for "Best Kids' Photo," "Best School Photo," and more. Join the fun! Discover more.
