The Celebrate Nashville Festival returns on Saturday, October 7th from 10 AM - 6 PM. Kidsville will feature a "create your own symbol" craft activity in the children's activity area. About the festival:

"In a city where one in six residents is foreign–born, the Celebrate Nashville Cultural Festival is not only one of Nashville’s favorite and most vibrant festivals, but also a celebration and reminder of what makes Nashville a great place to live. This FREE Festival provides an opportunity for intercultural dialogue through a Nashville festival experience and features a variety of dance and music performance on 5 different stages, food vendors offering authentic and exotic tastes from around the world, hands-on children’s activities, an area just for teens, a marketplace, and so much more!"

*Please note that Kidsville will NOT take place at the Parthenon on this date as we focus our energy, time, and talents at the Craft Fest!

Kidsville Family Festival!

Join us for our first ever KIDSVILLE FESTIVAL at Centennial Park!

General Information: The first ever Kidsville Family Festival will take place on Saturday, October 14th, from 10am-5pm on the lawn at Centennial Park. We hope that this will become an annual event where families can spend quality, fun time together in a supportive environment where they can learn more about the Nashville community. We are partnering with Blooma Yoga’s “Bellyrama” Festival which will kick off our event with a family yoga class and children’s yoga throughout the day. The festival will feature area musicians as well as the teen performers with the Centennial Park Jam Band program. Vendors will be on site with child and family friendly products available for sale. Local food trucks will also be featured. Area child-serving nonprofits and volunteer based organizations have been invited to showcase their services with the hope that families will be able to make meaningful connections while they enjoy the festivities. Kidsville will provide fun-filled activities including pumpkin painting, inflatable games, face-painting, musical meet & greets, an obstacle course, a mascot photo station, a Centennial Park themed scavenger hunt, and arts and crafts activities. Children will have the opportunity to show off their “be your own hero” cape made from recycled materials during our costume pageant portion of the festival. If you are interested in volunteering, or work with a nonprofit and would like to be involved, please contact Kidsville’s Program Manager, Sara Glascock, at sara@kidsvilleonline.org!
