When Saturday afternoon rolls around, you’ll find music lovers, kids, dogs, food trucks, and a beer garden before a lineup of about four bands each week.

Riffs Help Lead Food Truck Pack
Chefs Carlos Davis (from Barbados) and B.J. Lofback (from Detroit) met at a charity event after the Nashville Flood of 2010 and joined forces to take their food truck across the city serving inventive tacos, burgers and more sophisticated global fare. The pair also cater as Riffs Fine Street Food and have expanded into pop-up restaurant concepts as well. (While you'll often find them at Centennial Park for Musicians Corner as noted in the address above, it's best to keep up with them through social media or on the Nashville Food Truck Association free app.)
Nashville has 108 parks and 19 greenways in its 12,000 acres of open space. One of the most beloved parks, called Centennial, is an urban park with 132 acres in the West End area of town. It’s home to a replica of the Parthenon representing Nashville’s role as “Athens of the South,” and many events such as Musicians Corner, a free live music series, and Shakespeare in the Park.
