This family-friendly series combines the tastes and talents of East Nashvillians to preserve and enhance one of our city’s most unique landmarks, Shelby Park and Shelby Bottoms.  The shows run once a month July through October and offer music from local bands, craft beer, wine, and food vendors.  Musicians are invited to bring an instrument for an extra drink ticket and are encouraged to gather and jam the night away.

2020 COVID Aware Event

We will be kicking off the Cornelia Fort Pickin Party in August this year! Don't worry--to make up for not being able to gather in July, we will be adding a Friday night to our August date for a full Cornelia Fort Pickin' Party weekend!

Save the date for Friday August 21 and Saturday August 22.

We are making some changes to ensure we can safely come together. We will share details, entertainment lineup and ticket information soon. Thank you for your support of the Friends of Shelby Park.
