IMG_8794

Close to 8,000 people have stepped into our fairy world over the past three weeks and now it’s time for the fourth weekend of Shakespeare in the Park! If you’re thinking about coming out to the park this weekend, or are thinking about coming back to the park, this weekend is a special one so make your plans now! Who is gonna be there? Lots of fun people, a few dogs, some great vendors and talented musicians, the mayor and the NowPlayingNashville photo booth!

Here’s what’s cooking this weekend:

Special Events:

9/6
On Friday, at approximately 7:00 pm, help us welcome Mayor Karl Dean and other members of Metro as they mark 25 years of Shakespeare in the Park in Nashville!

9/7
NowPlayingNashville will be joining us in the park on Saturday with their photo booth. It’s free and a lot of fun so stop by, grab a few friends and some props and get up to a little fairy mischief yourself!

And remember that on Saturday we are also hosting Children’s Story Hour at Barnes and Noble at Vanderbilt from 4-5 pm. Conveniently located just across the street from Centennial Park at 2525 West End, children of all ages are invited to stop by for a story on their way to the park!

Pre-show Entertainment

This weekend, as with all upcoming weekends, we’ll be joined in the park by some wonderfully talented musicians (and we mean besides amazing talents of Music Supervisor Ed Haggard). Who’s going to be serenading you this week?

The Jazz Alliance

9/8
The Drumbinos

Many of these musicians will have music available in the Nashville Shakes tent during their performances. They’re all performing in the park for free, so if you like what you hear, support them!

Food Vendors

We like to see what people pull out of their picnic baskets every night at the park, but just because you can bring your own food, doesn’t mean you have too. Every weekend, we’re joined in the park by several food vendors. What will you find to snack on this weekend?
