When making your way through Nashville, Tennessee, there’s no time like the present when considering plans to be made. No matter what time of the year you’re taking the trip to Music City, there’s something going on, and something else, and something else. We may not be the city that NEVER sleeps, but we manage to get a lot done. Most people do come to visit for country music specifically but here at Nashville Bar Bike, we are constantly in the game of showing off everything else we have to offer around here. With that said, this week on the blog, we want to take another second to think about you, the visitors. Have you ever considered taking a stroll through Nashville on your birthday? Do you have one of those birthdays in June or August that don’t correlate with any major holidays or events? Or, are you the one who shares a birthday in close quarters with Christmas? Regardless of when the world was graced with your presence, Nashville hosts annual events from January through December and we are going to share some of our favorite yearly events by month. You’ll want to come hang out every year once you try out a few of these local activities. There’s a little bit of everything, from (of course) music to food and even a tomato themed art festival. Whether you want to celebrate just this year or for many to come, we like to keep up with tradition here in Nashville.

Don’t forget to consider a tour on our #PartyBike for your year-round partying needs. Not only is a ride on the party bike the top choice for birthday parties, but weddings, showers and any reason you can think of. With seats starting at just 25$ per person, you’re not going to find a better way to celebrate any and every occasion you could possibly think of. To find out more information about booking, just click the handy FAQ’s tab at the top of this page and follow us on Facebook/Instagram for regular updates! We can’t wait to meet you!
