4th of July events in Nashville usually involves getting together with your friends and finding the best rooftop bar or spot in a city park to watch the big fireworks show. Since Nashville has moved back into Phase 2, those types of options are rather limited.
But that’s okay! There are still ways that we can enjoy 4th of July events in Nashville, safely. There are virtual and outdoor activities that we can take part in this holiday weekend.
Keep scrolling to find out what to do this weekend in Nashville.
Let Freedom Sing! is typically the biggest and best 4th of July party in Nashville. This year, the event will be in honor of healthcare workers, first responders, and frontline workers. Instead of a full block party, there will be a televised fireworks show from downtown.
There won’t be any live music concerts, but the televised event will be set to previously recorded music by Nashville artists. As we mentioned before, spectators for the show will not be allowed to gather in city parks.

Big Machine Vodka did some pretty awesome stuff by distilling hand sanitizer and distributing it nationally, so their 4th of July event in Nashville is the perfect opportunity to show them how much we appreciate their hard work!
Head to their downtown location (right next to FGL House) and enjoy live music plus red, white, and blue vodka slushies all weekend long! We all know an ice cold slushie hits the spot on a hot summer day!

Is there any 4th of July meal more appropriate than hot dogs!?
Save yourself the trouble of grilling and head to Von Elrod’s, one of our favorite restaurants in Nashville. All you have to do is buy one big beer (easy enough!) and you get a free hot dog. They’re running this special all day long so make sure to grab a couple of pals and take advantage of this dog deal.
