FREE WEEKLY CONCERT SERIES RETURNS TO NASHVILLE'S RIVERFRONT
"Nashville Dancin' presented by Dollar General" brings music, fun and thousands of people downtown on Thursday nights
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – April 23, 2013 – Nashville Mayor Karl Dean today announced “Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General,” the return of the city’s free Thursday summer concert series at Nashville’s Riverfront Park.
“The return of the Nashville Dancin’ concert series is great news for Nashville and music fans,” said Nashville Mayor Karl Dean. “The free concerts will be family-friendly and include many top names from a variety of musical genres. Concert-goers will get a chance to enjoy our beautiful riverfront during the shows, which will add energy to our already vibrant downtown. I always say you can never have too much live music in Nashville, and I want to thank Dollar General, Tom Morales, Kaleidoscope Media and all of the great sponsors supporting this event for giving Nashvillians another great reason to come downtown for music.”
“Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General” will feature free Thursday evening shows kicking off June 13 and going through August 1 beginning at 5pm on Nashville’s Riverfront Park. The talent lineup will be announced in May.
Television and radio personality Storme Warren will host several of the shows and the event’s festive atmosphere will be augmented by local Nashville food trucks. Produced by TomKats Inc. and Kaleidoscope Media, the return of the music series represents a collaborative effort by Dollar General, the Office of Mayor Karl Dean, Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau and sponsors: Bud Light, Twice Daily, Ole Smoky Moonshine, Patrón Spirits, Grand Avenue, Metro Parks, Green Village Recycling, Horton Group, Nashville Scene, Comcast, 102.9 The Buzz, Now Playing Nashville and Yelp.
“Dollar General is committed to Nashville and improving the quality of life in our community,” said Rick Dreiling, chairman and CEO of Dollar General. “We’re excited to support an event that’s good for our city and will provide free music downtown. Helping people save money is what we’re all about, so we see “Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General” as a way to give back to our city and the people of Middle Tennessee.”
For over a decade, Dancin’ in the District was a Nashville institution, bringing some of the best live music to downtown Nashville and helping to revitalize lower Broadway. With the city’s growing economy and the current national attention on Music City, “Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General” will be a welcomed addition to the city's entertainment landscape.
Tom Morales, creator of the original series and producer of “Nashville Dancin' presented by Dollar General,” says it was the right time to launch the new and exciting downtown event.
"A generation of Nashvillians grew up with Dancin’, so it's natural that it return. In a lot of ways, it helped foster what Nashville is today," Morales said.
“Nashville Dancin' presented by Dollar General” is expected to attract thousands of attendees per week, directly impacting downtown businesses and increasing foot traffic.
"Nashville is known for having world-class, free live music and this only adds to the package,” said Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau. “The concert series will boost what is already a thriving tourism season and bring even more visitors to see all that Music City has to offer.”
Dancin’ attendees will have free parking at LP Field thanks to the Tennessee Titans. Additionally, Grand Avenue is providing free shuttle service from the stadium to Riverfront Park; however, patrons are encouraged to utilize the pedestrian bridge.
“Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General” is also proud to announce its commitment to the following charities for the event: The Dollar General Literacy Foundation, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt and The Pencil Foundation. “Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General” will announce a text to donate campaign in the coming month.

So this goes under the "News" section...and we. have. some. news.
Starting this coming weekend, Nashville Food Trucks can regularly be found serving on VANDERBILT CAMPUS! A year's work in progress, Wanderland has partnered with Vanderbilt Student Governement and will book and manage a dedicated food truck parking venue (or endearingly called a "pod") right in the heart of campus on Greek Row! With weekend service beginning Friday night and wrapping for the weekend on Sunday night, Vanderbilt students and staff will have full access for the first time to food trucks consistently on their home turf. We can hear you screaming now.
The truck schedule will be posted here on our site so check back for updated info on your favorite trucks and when they'll be serving on campus.
Spread the word. Bring your buddies. Eat responsibly. Repeat.

What a weekend! Wanderland was proud to serve at this past Saturday's Metro Parks/YMCA sponsored event Healthy Kid's Day 2012 at Centennial Park that saw thousands of happy faces show up to support the cause!
Then the following day we served at the Grand Opening of Cumberland Park, Nashville's newest and most design savvy green space for sure! It's a gorgeous play space over looking the Cumberland River, with water features (clean water btw), rolling landscapes, walking paths, the fastest slide (believe me) and a futuristic sound stage just the slightest bit reminiscient of the Millenium Park Bean in Chicago. Take your kids, take your families, just GO!
Next up is the Mayor's Field Day! This event is specifically geared towards Nashville’s youth. Tennessee has the nation’s fourth-highest childhood obesity rate. The numbers are equally distressing in Nashville where 38.1 percent of our youth are either obese or overweight. On May 5, 2012, the journey to a healthier Nashville will continue with the first-ever “Mayor’s Field Day with the Tennessee Titans” at LP Field and Wanderland will be there serving up all the friendly folks who come out!.
This event will engage families of diverse fitness levels in a relaxed, tournament-type field day designed around learning new, fun, kid-friendly ways to be active. Attendees will enjoy creative games, a fitness fair, a Celebration Awards Ceremony highlighting the day’s events and live entertainment. And it's FREE!
So come support Nashville in it's effort to encourage healthy, active living and enjoy Nashville's mobile fleet of food trucks presented by Wanderland while you're there!
