Fall officially began on September 22nd, and so did a multitude of fun autumn events in Middle Tennessee! From wine tasting to pumpkin patches, Nashville residents have an abundance of activities to choose from. However, with the beautiful weather and so many things to do, it can be difficult to pinpoint which events are worth your time.
Luckily, the team at Southern Homes Collective put together a list of the best things to do in Nashville this October and beyond. Explore Nashville and the surrounding areas while enjoying the picturesque autumn leaves and crisp weather with these unique activities.
Arrington Vineyards, also known as Nashville’s “wine country,” is located 25 miles south of Nashville, Tennessee. The stunning property features 16 acres of vineyards, five tasting rooms, gorgeous views, shaded picnic areas, and plenty of free parking. And, Arrington Vineyards produces and bottles twenty-two award-winning wines onsite.
Each day, Arrington Vineyards is open for wine tastings and wine bottle purchases. They also host a variety of events like Food Truck Fridays, Music in the Vines, and other popup events each month. Check the event calendar to plan your day trip to the majestic Arrington Vineyards–you won’t be disappointed!
