Calling All Banjos: Year’s Last Full Moon Pickin’ Party On Friday

As the cooler weather rolls into the midstate, the summer festivities are finally winding down and making way for fall.  One of those festivities is the Full Moon Pickin’ Party, put on by Friends of Warner Parks, which features four things we love about Tennessee: Music, food, booze and the great outdoors. The parties run from May through October every time there’s a full moon, meaning that this Friday’s event is your last chance of the season to catch this bit of Nashville magic. What exactly is a pickin’ party, you may ask? It’s just a bunch of folks getting together on a moonlit night and jamming out to some bluegrass over food (for purchase!) and drinks (included!) Tickets are a little steep at $15 in advance or $20 at the door, but they include a couple of drink tickets and all proceeds fund flood cleanup for the parks and all sorts of awesome educational programs. In addition to a great bluegrass lineup on the main stage, folks are invited to bring a couple of camping chairs and bluegrass instruments of their own for some impromptu jam sessions throughout the evening. Carting in your own approved instrument will get you a heftily discounted admission of just five bucks.

The last Full Moon Pickin’ Party of the season, benefiting Friends of Warner Parks, happens this Friday, October 14th from 7 to 11 PM at the Equestrian Barn on Old Hickory Blvd. Order tickets here, or just show up!
