Beer and Puppies
You can rely on Nashville to host one of the biggest and best craft beer festivals in the country. Now in its 18th year, the Music City Brewers Festival returns on July 27th with close to 50 breweries represented.
This festival also has personality. Besides beer, there will be hula hoopers, fire breathers, giant Jenga, and a specially-erected dodgeball area, which has become a bit of an annual tradition. There will be puppies, thanks to The Nashville Humane Association, who will definitely let you cuddle the animals and might even let you adopt one. The puppies and the dodgeball might be key to the festival’s enduring success—among the legion of festivals that have sprouted in recent years, it’s easy to see why this one is still going strong.
