Arts. Everywhere.


Artober Nashville, a month-long celebration of arts and culture held each year in October, informs and inspires the city’s awareness of and participation in art of all genres.

Artober Nashville seeks to engage every Nashvillian in arts-rooted experiences and creative living. To highlight the depth and breadth of arts activities available citywide, the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission and NowPlayingNashville partner with hundreds of arts and cultural organizations on official Artober Nashville events.

Artober Nashville is one of the South’s single-largest cultural celebrations –featuring events in visual and performing arts, music, craft, film and more– and engaging an estimated 400,000 Nashvillians where they live, work & play, including Nashville’s great neighborhoods. There is something for everyone to enjoy.

Artober Nashville is held in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities Month, as designated by Americans for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
