The Perfect Night Out

Whether you’re looking for a fun, summer date night or an outdoor group hang with friends, this event has got you covered. Food, music, and a summer night under the stars are the makings of a perfect evening.

A Summer Tradition
For over 25 years the Full Moon Pickin’ Party has been one of Nashville’s most iconic summertime events, taking place right in Bellevue. This seasonal tradition brings family and friends together for a night of live music in one of Nashville’s favorite parks. Tickets are available online or at the door and includes complimentary bottled water, soft drinks, and up to three beers for adults. The Full Moon Pickin’ Parties are a way to raise funds for Friends of Warner Parks with the proceeds working to preserve and protect the beloved Percy and Edwin Warner Parks. With monthly parties taking place May through September, make sure to include a Full Moon Pickin’ Party into your summer schedule!

Impromptu Pickin’ Circles
In addition to the bands playing on the main stage, the Full Moon Pickin’ Party is known for the impromptu pickin’ circles comprised of musicians attending the event. Attendees who bring an acoustic instrument to join one of these organic jam sessions will even receive a discounted admission. 

Tasty Bites at the Food Truck Court
While attendees can bring their own snacks and non-alcoholic beverages if you’re looking to get food and snacks at the party, head over to the Food Truck Court! In its own section away from the main stage, the Food Truck Court boasts loads of trucks offering a vast array of food and drinks. With everything from hot dogs and barbecue to Asian and Mediterranean dishes, there is truly something for every taste bud.
