Music and Molasses Festival
The country comes to the city with a celebration of the harvest season at Nashville's Agricultural Museum each year. There is music, of course, with two stages offering a homely selection of Bluegrass. Visitors can learn to make molasses like the old-timers, with demonstrations and tastings at the sorghum mill. Other ingredients for the fun day include storytellers, country cloggers, a sale of traditional crafts, taffy pulls, apple butter cooking demonstrations, stick horse races, delicious homemade cakes and pies, square-dancing, buggy rides and a touch-farm. There is also a molasses maze, sheep herding demonstrations and competitions, and a grist mill and traditional log cabins to look at. Phone (615) 837 5197 for more information.
Venue: Tennessee Agricultural Museum, Ellington Agricultural Center
Date: 20-21 October 2012
