NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — There’s a lot going on in Middle Tennessee this weekend! Here are just a few suggestions.

Nashville Pride Festival
Saturday, June 22 (10 a.m. – 9 p.m.)
Sunday, June 23 (noon – 6 p.m.)

The Nashville Pride Festival returns to Public Square Park this weekend and will feature more than 200 vendors, a kids and family fun zone, youth area, dance tent and three stages with local and national groups (TLC and Neon Trees are headlining).

The annual event, now in its 31st year, is the largest LGBTQ event in Tennessee.

The 2019 Pride Parade will be held on Saturday, beginning at 10 a.m., on Broadway at 8th Avenue.

Nashville Water Lantern Festival
Saturday, June 22

The Nashville Water Lantern Festival is happening this weekend at The Parthenon. The event is not free and the longer you wait to buy tickets, the price goes up ($40 if you wait to buy on Saturday).

A ticket will get you into the festival, a floating lantern (that you’ll design), commemorative drawstring bag, a marker and a wristband.

Nashville Predators Craft Beer Festival
Saturday, June 22 (3 p.m. – 7 p.m.)

The seventh annual Nashville Predators Craft Beer Festival is happening on Saturday! The best part? Proceeds benefit the Nashville Predators Foundation, which supports Middle Tennessee nonprofit groups and programs in the community.
