2013 Tennessee Volksfest

The Tennessee Volksfest presented by Volkswagen of Cool Springs will be bringing the tradition and tastes of Munich to Nashville, on October 26th and 27th. We are extremely excited to be hosting this landmark event on the front lawn of Centennial Park, with the Parthenon being our back drop. The Tennessee Volksfest is a free event that is open to all ages and will feature German food from Gerst Haus, beer, wine, as well as carnival games, live music, and a vintage Volkswagen car show.  

We will be creating a traditional German bier garden that will offer seating for nearly 1000 people! Traditional German beers will include offerings from Franziskaner, Hofbräu, Krombacher, and Spaten. Nashville’s own Gerst Haus will be preparing and selling a large variety of German foods, and you will be able to pick and choose your own delights! Act now to get $25 in tokens (used to buy food and beer at event) for $20!

The 2013 Tennessee Volksfest is brought to you by Rhizome Productions, Ajax Turner, Industrial Strength Marketing, Yelp, and 102.9 The Buzz.
