Traversing Tennessee in March and April
Whether you visit East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee or West Tennessee, at this time of the year there is always something to see and do. Whether it be craft shows or music festivals, there is something for everyone. If you hurry down to Tennessee you can still catch some of the March activities.
March 3rd – 6th in Nashville, TN you can visit the Lawn and Garden Show held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. No need to worry about the weather as this is held indoors. Lectures and demonstrations await you. Adults $12, Seniors $11, shows begin at 10:00 am. For more information on this show visit www.nashvillelawnandgardenshow.com.
March 4th – 6th is the Upper Cumberland Homes and Garden Show. This show is much more than gardens as there will be vendors, cooking demonstrations and celebrity guests. Admission is $5. Lots to see at this home show. Check out the list of exhibitors! Visit www.uchba.com for information.
March 28th – April 3rd is Mule Day – yes, you read that correctly. It is held in Columbia, Tennessee, which they claim is the mule capitol of the world. It’s no joke I guess since they also claim over 200,000 people attend this show. Log pulling and log loading events as well as line dancing, clogging and even a beauty pageant. I won’t mention all the food, but if you love ham and biscuits, pancakes or chili you better head on over. There is way too much happening at Mule Day to explain it all here….check it out at www.muleday.com
April 1st is a big day at Dollywood as the Festival of Nations opens that day and runs until the 18th. I have been there for the Festival of Nations and it’s very colorful to say the least! You can learn more about this event and Dollywood in general at www.dollywood.com
April 2nd is the Quit Show in Madison, TN. You can watch quilters in action and it’s free. This sounds like my kind of event! Call 615-417-1879 for information.
April 8-10 is Rhythm n’ Blooms Music Festival in Knoxville. Be prepared to listen to some great music. Check it out at www.rhythmnblooomsfest.com
I hope you find some of these events to your liking and please enjoy your visit to any part of Tennessee!
