Caroling for Kids

Since 1916, volunteers have caroled throughout Nashville, and its surrounding areas, for the benefit of Fannie Battle Day Home for Children. Today, that tradition continues through door-to-door fundraising, as well as a variety of other creative endeavors.


Yum!East gathers East Nashville restaurants, chefs, food artisans, and specialty purveyors to showcase the best of this notable neighborhood’s culinary landscape. Admission includes unlimited food samples, a souvenir pint glass, and an open bar featuring local craft beer and wine.
