This Riverfront Festival In Nashville Is The Most Unique Festival In The Entire State

One of the things that makes downtown Nashville so stunningly beautiful is its location right on the banks of the Cumberland River. The river provides such a beautiful and serene juxtaposition to the towering skyscrapers just a few blocks away. And trust us that there’s no better way to see the river and the city than the city’s annual Dragon Boat Festival, a festival that features some of the most unique events and food vendors you’ll find anywhere in the city, all to further the preservation of the river. If you’ve never made it to the Dragon Boat Festival, this is the year you need to go.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
