Fall Festival

September 28, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Russell at Fall Festival 2016

Fall Festival with Dose Coffee, Kendra Scott, The Urban Juicer, Erica's Touch of Taste, and Bloodworth Motorcycles

Who doesn’t love fall in Tennessee? Pumpkins and gourds, blooming mums, mild weather, changing leaves, and golden sunlight. It’s the perfect time of year to gather together with one’s community simply for the joy of it.

Friends Life Community is delighted to announce that one of our most beloved community events returns this September—and we cannot wait to see you there. Join us Thursday, September 28, from 5pm–7pm for our annual Fall Festival, a free evening of yard games, live music, food trucks, community art, and more. The event takes place right here on our property at 4414 Granny White Pike and there will be lots to entertain:

Browse the beautiful jewelry from Kendra Scott’s trunk, then mosey over to our community art table. Learn about the newest bikes in the showroom at Bloodworth Motorcycles, then listen to live music from local songwriters. Sip a freshly pressed juice from The Urban Juicer’s truck while wandering the rooms of our campus. Warm yourself with a cappuccino from Dose’s new coffee truck, then play a few yard games with the kiddos. Or treat yourself to Nashville’s best soul food at Erica’s Touch of Taste at one of our comfy picnic tables.

Friends Life Community’s Fall Festival is a community event that is family friendly and open to the public. If you are curious about our organization, this is your opportunity to see us close up. Meet our staff and see our building. Learn about who we are and what we do in an easy, fun environment, sipping fall drinks, eating tasty food, and enjoying the beautiful weather at the same time. So put on your party shoes and grab your favorite pumpkin. Come celebrate fall with us!
