Heidi Suydam

Fri-yay is here, and a lot is happening in Nashville this weekend. If you aren't going to see Beyonce, there are lots of *FREE* things to do around town, or if you are in town for the big show, you might want to take advantage of these free events before and after! This week you will find some Beyonce pre-party fun, a 21+ costume-encouraged Barbie-themed event, things for the kids, and more!

This list has exclusively free events, including a live music venue link for a more comprehensive list of venues offering free live music.

New additions to this weekly list - with live links for more information:

  • Free Parks
  • Self-Guided Historical Tours
  • Guide to Free Live Music Venues
  • Nashville Neighborhoods to explore

Check out these free events happening around town this weekend.

Some age restrictions apply, and some events request registration (super easy online!).

All event information is subject to change. This is a carefully curated list, but please check event links and information from event hosts and coordinators for more information.

Nashville Neighborhoods to Explore

Nashville is full of eclectic, interesting neighborhoods, free to explore and full of vibrant, unique experiences. While this is not a complete list, I have selected a few to share this week and will add to the list in the future!

  • The Gulch is a trendy area with restaurants, boutique shops, and lively nightlife.
  • Sylvan Park is a charming residential neighborhood full of tree-lined streets and historic homes but also features shops, restaurants, and nightlife, as the name states - a beautiful park right off Charlotte Ave, perfect for picnics and kids' playtime.
  • The Nations has a thriving food and drink scene featuring breweries, restaurants, and coffee shops.
  • Germantown has historic charm, modern amenities, boutique shops, and eclectic dining experiences.
  • East Nashville is known for its bohemian feel and artistic atmosphere. The area has cultural diversity, historic homes, unique shops, and a thriving local music scene.
