Full Moon Pickin’ Parties

This unique bluegrass music series is one of Nashville’s most popular outdoor events, attracting families, friends, and dog lovers from all over to hear local musicians play together under the full moon in one of Nashville’s more picturesque settings: Percy Warner Park. With events running May-September, you can enjoy traditional bluegrass music, fare from local food trucks, craft beer, and more, all summer long.

Do you play a bluegrass instrument? We encourage you to bring your own instrument and join in on one of the many pickin’ circles throughout the night!

B.Y.O. blanket or chair, a dog if you’d like (on a leash no longer than 6 ft), and snacks if you wish (no alcoholic beverages permitted).
