This past weekend I was down in Nashville, Tennessee with my booth mate Jen Wyric of EleanorMac for the East Nashville Arts Fest. While I have been to Nashville several times over the past decade, this is the first time I have ever spent time in East Nashville, and I must say I’m in love!
From I Dream of Weenie to Bongo Java, everything about East Nashville was great! The East Nashville Arts Festival was along Woodland Street, and while the sun may have been very, very hot, everyone was super friendly- customers and fellow artists alike.
I got to see some great art from many people (I’ll follow up on some of my favorite goods later this week), but I want to give a special shout out to my absolutely favorite thing of the whole festival, the Laster family and C.M. Laster’s most awesome art car.
The festival was so great, the location grand, and I had so much fun, I’m already planning my next trip back to East Nashville. I’ll be sending in my application later this week for the Tomato Art Fest and crossing my fingers I get to return to East Nashville in August (I think this past weekend was a good taste of what the August weather will be like, or at least that is what I was told several times!)
Thank goodness we planned ahead and brought the walls for the tent so that we could block some of the sun. Next time I’ll remember to cooler and a few (hundred) bags of ice, too!
So, I can’t wait to get back to East Nashville, hopefully for the Tomato Art Festival, and I will really be looking forward to next year’s East Nashville Arts Fest!
