Free (and Fun) Events this Fall in Nashville!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville's top fall events that are free in Nashville

If you’ve just purchased a new house, you’re saving for your next home, or you just prefer to pinch your pennies, you may be looking for some free outings you can enjoy this season! Since the first official day of fall was last Friday, we wanted to share some of the free local events we’ll be taking advantage of between now and December. Hopefully we can help you plan your next stay-cation adventure!

September

Nashville Frist Center has free admission on Museum Day LiveOn Saturday, September 23rd, we’re excited about the Smithsonian’s annual Museum Day, where you can download free tickets to visit any of their participating museums. Here in Nashville, you can enjoy free admission to the Frist Center that day. You could also go to the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery or Tennessee State Museum, but these never charge for admission.

But maybe museums aren’t your thing. In that case, you can spend the 23rd on the edge of your seat as you watch local aviators show off manned flying machines they have actually created themselves. The Red Bull Flugtag first came to Nashville ten years ago, and we can barely contain our excitement about its return!

The following weekend, the Hermitage (home of President Andrew Jackson) is hosting its annual Fall Festival across its beautiful property on September 30-October 1. The festival always has a great musical lineup, arts and crafts vendors, and of course, history lessons. Just don’t forget to print your free tickets!

October

Nashville OktoberfestBetween October 5-8, Oktoberfest is coming to town again in the Germantown neighborhood! Our festival is the 2nd largest Oktoberfest in the entire country, with eight draft beer stations, a beer garden, and over 100 other vendors spread out over ten blocks. Bring the kids for face painting and games, and let your fur babies join in the fun with the Pup Parade and Dachshund Derby. You can also get your exercise on when you join the 5k Walk/Run and dance to authentic German folk music! Our Dispatcher Darrian is especially excited about going to Oktoberfest because it’s an annual tradition he keeps with his wife.

We recommend taking a break from the beer on Saturday, October 7th to enjoy the Celebrate Nashville cultural festival at Centennial Park. Your whole family can enjoy various international dancers, musicians, and food, plus tour the Parthenon’s interior museum for free. Before you go, be sure to check out their schedule of events so you don’t miss your favorite performers on each stage.

Nashville always has a free Barktoberfest for dogsThe dog lovers of our office are usually more excited about Barktoberfest on October 21st than they are about the traditional Oktoberfest earlier in the month. You and your dogs can both attend in costume and win fun prizes for creativity or group costumes. There are tons of games to play with your pups, plus vendors to shop and win more prizes from!

Those without dogs, like our Marketing Assistant Cara, might be more excited about the Nashville Symphony’s annual Free Day of Music. Throughout the day (and night!), you can tour the Schermerhorn and enjoy popular musical acts, including the symphony itself. Every year, the Free Day of Music changes, so be sure to check out the Nashville Symphony’s website to confirm the date and times!

And to round out the month, you have to check out Historic Franklin’s annual Pumpkinfest on October 28th. Your kids can show off their costumes while they enjoy trick-or-treating, bounce houses, pony rides, and games. And none of you will want to miss the Leiper’s Fork Carving Club with their intricate and impressive carved pumpkin faces. Before you leave, don’t forget to guess the weight of the giant pumpkin grown by Franklin’s sister city, Carleton Place in Canada.

November

Nashville Christmas Craft FairAlthough Christmas won’t be coming around for another 2 months, we recommend checking out McGavock High School’s annual Christmas craft fair on November 4th! Unlike the main Christmas craft festival in Nashville, McGavock’s fair doesn’t have an entrance fee. If you have strong enough will power, you could walk out without spending a cent…but if you do find something you just have to buy, all proceeds benefit the school directly.

The following Saturday, November 11th, you can take the whole family to the Berry Hill Street Festival! Kids can ring in the holiday season with free ornament crafts and cookie decorating, not to mention storytime and the annual parade full of seasonal characters. You can even enter your pets into the Pup Parade to show off their talents and physique while helping raise money for Crossroads Pets.

Did we miss your favorite free fall celebrations? Leave us a comment to let us know! And if you’re looking for help moving this season, please give us a call or text at 615-248-6288, or visit our website for information.

Celebrate Christmas in July!

5 christmas in july celebrations in nashville

If you’re anything like us, you believe the “best time of the year” should be a year-round occurrence and you’re already planning the Christmas presents you plan to give to your close friends and family this year. Fortunately, we discovered not too long ago that Nashville’s hottest month offers the best of Christmas time and summer vacation all in one as everyone celebrates Christmas in July. Every year, it seems like more Christmas in July celebrations just keep popping up all over Nashville! Here are our top 5 favorites coming up in 2017:

Christmas in July Coat Drive

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK hosts the Christmas in July Coat DriveSaturday, July 8  |  9 am-11 am  |  Thriftsmart on Nolensville

This cause is obviously near and dear to our hearts! Last year was our first year hosting this coat drive benefiting K-4th grade students who attend Park Avenue Elementary School and live in poverty. We were able to collect 200 coats–enough to ensure every child who needed one was able to receive a warm jacket during the winter! This year, if you come out to help us fill a 16-foot moving truck with coats, sweaters, and jackets, you can enter to win a free pair of tickets to a December performance of The Nutcracker, performed by the Nashville Ballet and Nashville Symphony. Everyone who makes a donation will also receive a 50% off voucher to use on any purchase at Thriftsmart. We’ll even be making holiday crafts and join forces with The BIG 98 to give away other prizes! Click here for more details about the event.

The Nutcracker Sale

Every July, the Nashville Ballet hosts its biggest discount of the year for its annual Nutcracker performance, where purchasers can get their holiday tickets early for a much lower fee. The non-profit also celebrates with flash mob-style performances around town and invitations for children to audition for roles. Take advantage of the savings by calling, clicking, or visiting the TPAC box office!

Dive-In Move: The Polar Express

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK's list of Nashville Christmas in July eventsFriday, July 7 Park open 10 am-8 pm; Movie at 8:30 pm  |  Nashville Shores

During the summer, Nashville Shores always hosts a “Dive-In Movie” series, where family-friendly movies begin at dusk for park goers to enjoy. This year, the park is taking the tradition a step further by hosting a full day dedicated the the Christmas in July celebration! Simply bring an unwrapped toy (which will be donated to Toys for Tots), and your whole family can enjoy admission for $19.99 each. (And if you have season passes, it’s even cheaper!) The first 200 guests will also receive a commemorative ornament or Polar Express bell.

Second Sunday Toy Hack

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK's picks for Christmas in July in nashvilleSunday, July 9  |  2 pm-4 pm  |  Adventure Science Center

Every month, the Adventure Science Center opens its doors to teach kids 10 and up about how to manipulate parts from old devices to make new, ingenius inventions! July is an especially good month for holiday-hungry kids to join in the fun so they can do the same job as Santa’s elves and make their own new toys.  The cost is also very affordable–either $4 if you’re a member or $7 if you aren’t! And don’t worry–the program starts with a safety lesson, and ends with your child taking home his or her new favorite toy.

Christmas in July with Yogi

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Christmas in July in NashvilleFriday, July 14 thru Sunday, July 16  |  Jellystone Park

Celebrate Christmas early with Yogi Bear and his friends! When you camp out at Jellystone Park this weekend, your family can have fun making snowflakes, playing in snowball fights, hunting the gingerbread man and making his home, and even chatting with Santa Claus on Saturday! Jellystone also raffles off a Yogi Bear stuffed animal to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital over the Christmas in July weekend. There are also plenty of activities that happen every weekend at the park, including games, karaoke, face painting, and rides.

Movers for Moms in Nashville

What is Movers for Moms, and when is it happening this year?

We are SO excited about this year’s Movers for Moms campaign!  Most people don’t know that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK was originally founded by the mom of the original “two men,” and we’ve always dedicated our organization to benefiting moms in need around the country.  Every year, every single United States TWO MEN AND A TRUCK location hosts Movers for Moms to benefit a local women’s or family shelter for Mother’s Day.

Locally, our Nashville Movers for Moms campaign aims to collect necessity items (such as toiletries, health products, baby products, etc.) for the deserving moms at Safe Haven Family Shelter.  This year, our goal is to collect 2,000 necessity items for Safe Haven moms between March 24 and May 4!  We’ll bring the final collection to Safe Haven the weekend of Mother’s Day.

Find out how many donations we ended up collecting by clicking here!

How to Meet People When You’re New to Nashville, for Every Personality Type

How to meet people in Nashville

So you’re getting ready to move to Nashville?  You’re not alone!  In 2015, there were about 80 people moving here every day, and many of them moved here without having family members or a job lined up beforehand.  Moving to a new city can be intimidating if you don’t know anyone, especially if you’re shy or feel uncomfortable striking up conversations with strangers.  Not to worry–we have some suggestions for building your first Nashville friendships, no matter what type of personality you have!

Nashville is Music City!If you’re a music lover, Nashville isn’t called “Music City” for nothing!  This town has plenty of well-attended music festivals, writers’ rounds, and venues where you can meet other music enthusiasts.  Live on the Green is one of Nashville’s many music festivals, but is unique because it’s free and lasts nearly all summer long.  Nashville also offers tons of year-round open mic nights featuring up-and-coming local artists that you can meet, and Nashville Guru offers a list of the best weekly performances to check out.  And restaurants all over the city, such as 12th & Porter, pride themselves on providing top-notch music in a casual, standing-room-only setting that is perfect for meeting locals.

If you’re athletic, Nashville has plenty of fitness studios and outdoor groups to offer.  Regularly attending a specialized studio, such as Shakti Power Yoga or Climb Nashville, is a great way to make connections with people who share the same interests that you do.  Or if you want a guarantee that you’ll be around the same group of members on a regular basis, consider joining a group like Fleet Feet’s running groups.  This is a good option for more reserved Nashville newbies who would prefer to see the same people multiple times before introducing themselves!

If you’re a self-employed entrepreneur or a creative, try practicing your networking and friendship-building skills at the same time at one of Nashville’s many local coffee shops.  In this town, it’s totally normal to start chatting with the person next to you in line or sitting at the table next to yours…  Just be polite and avoid interrupting those wearing headphones or engrossed in their notebook!  Some of the most popular local spots are Edgehill and Frothy Monkey.

La'Vincent volunteering with the Nashville Humane Association during our Movers for Mutts campaignIf you’re a philanthropist, volunteer!  Becoming a regular volunteer with a Nashville non-profit almost forces you to build relationships with the other volunteers who come in at the same time that you do, because you’ll most likely be working together on a task.  Click here to check out our favorite local non-profits to work with!

If you’re in love with your dog, you definitely moved to the right city.  Nashville is a very dog-friendly city, and walking around with your fur baby is the perfect way to get people to walk over and start a conversation as they pet and love on your pooch.  If you’re not sure where to go with your dog, start with the nearest dog park!  You can also bring Fido out on a lunch or dinner date at one of Nashville’s numerous dog-friendly restaurants.

If you’re a homebody, meet people in your neighborhood by working on an exterior home improvement project, hosting a neighborhood grill-out in your backyard, or attending neighborhood functions.  Working in your front yard’s garden or trimming your tree’s extraneous branches allows you to call out a greeting to (and possibly start a conversation with) neighbors who are strolling by.  Many neighborhoods also host events, such as East Nashville’s Grassy Knoll Movie Nights, for their residents.

Finally, the Meetup app or website is a great way for every type of Nashvillian to get out of the house and find people with common interests.  From improv actors to belly dancers to moms who just need a break, you can find just about every type of group through this easy-to-use database!

No matter how you choose to put yourself out there, you’re sure to meet plenty of new friends in Nashville by being open to meeting new people!

All About the Habitat for Humanity’s 2016 Women Build

Women Build reception

Even though our company is usually associated with male employees, we’re dedicated to supporting strong women in our community…  After all, we owe all of our success to the strong woman who founded our company, Mary Ellen Sheets!  So we were honored to have our marketer, Jenni, invited to the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville’s 2016 Women Build kick-off reception last week.

At the reception, Jenni and over 100 other guests were able to listen to Ja’Nae, one of last year’s Women Build home recipients, tell her story of working with Habitat for Humanity.  The attendees were also able to meet and chat with the two mothers who are this year’s Women Build home recipients.  “I found their stories so inspiring,” Jenni said after the reception.  “I’m not usually an emotional person, but I was holding back tears!”

Jenni is thrilled about getting involved in the Women Build this year.  As a company, we’ll be contributing to the annual Couture Construction fundraising event in March by helping fill the attendees’ gift bags with pink-themed merchandise.  But Jenni is looking forward to supporting the cause even further by joining one of the Women Build Committees.  “Even though we’re just a small business, the Women Build also needs people who are willing to donate their time, and not just money.  I’m thinking of joining the Build Hospitality Committee so I can meet and support all the volunteers working on the build sites.”

At Two Men and a Truck Nashville, we’ve always been admirers of the Greater Nashville Habitat for Humanity’s work in the community.  We’re all so excited to be partnering with “Habitat Nash” this year to benefit their home recipients!  Most of Habitat Nash’s building projects will take place during the fall and spring months, and we’ll be here to help move as many Habitat families as possible into their brand new homes.

If you’d like to get involved with the 2016 Women Build in Nashville, click here for volunteer information.  If you need information for your personal move, check out our website or give us a call at 615-248-6288!

How to Get Involved with Movers for Mutts

This blog is about the 2015 Movers for Mutts program! Read about this year’s program here!

If you weren’t able to make our kick-off event this past Saturday, you can still help us support the Nashville Humane Association!  Every summer, the NHA runs low on a few “wishlist items:” Paper Towels, Bleach, and Kitten Chow.  Our goal is to help them collect as many of these wishlist items as we can by the end of the summer.

If you’d like to make a wishlist donation, we’ve partnered with some great local businesses around town where you can drop off your gift:

drop off locations

We’ll also be hosting a booth at the NHA’s annual Dog Day festival on Saturday, September 19th at Centennial Park!  You can join in our Movers for Mutts campaign by stopping by our booth for some free giveaways and donation games.  For each $1 donation you make to Movers for Mutts, we’ll give you a chance to win prizes for your pooch in our Movers for Mutts Plink-O game.  (Plus, we’ll teach you how to make your own Plink-O game at home with your leftover moving boxes!)

Movers for Mutts

On Saturday, July 18th, we’ll be officially kicking off our Movers for Mutts campaign to benefit the Nashville Humane Association!  Our goal for Movers for Mutts is to collect the three items they need the most: Paper Towels, Bleach, and Kitten Chow.  (We’ll also, of course, accept monetary donations to turn into a Visa gift card at the end of the campaign.)  So why should you be at our awesome kick-off event?

1. You can meet adorable (and adoptable!) homeless pets.

Teddy’s Wagon will be camping out at our West Nashville location from 10 am-3 pm to show off some of the NHA’s most loveable dogs and cats.  You can stop by anytime to meet and play with your new fur friends.

Nashville Pet Products

2. You can get free goodies for yourself and your pets.

Who doesn’t love free dog treats, leashes, and other fun pet accessories?  Stop by for some freebies from Two Men and a Truck Nashville and a free copy of the latest Nashville Paw magazine issue.  Plus, if you bring ANY donation–even one roll of paper towels or a dollar–you’ll be entered to win one of our amazing raffle prizes:

— Nashville Paw has donated a gift package of a free 1-yr subscription of their magazine, a free t-shirt, and a new collar for your dog.

— See Spot Eat has donated a yummy treat package for your pooch.

Raffle Prize

3. You’ll be supporting an amazing organization.

This is the most important reason to come.  Movers for Mutts is raising awareness for the need to spay and neuter your pets, and for the many animals at the NHA who need forever families.  By coming out to the kick-off event with your family and friends, you’ll help us give donations and support for this great cause!
