 Introducing Cheekwood Nights—
An Unforgettable Evening Experience

June - October, First Fridays

Mark your calendars for the first Friday of every month this summer—you’ve got a date with Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art. 

Remember the magic of Chihuly Nights? The brilliant lights and colors? The warm summer air, the sparkle and the sounds, all experienced under the vast night sky?  This summer, the magic is back. Cheekwood Nights, held every first Friday of the month, June – October, will offer something for singles, families and is sure to be the best date night in town.  

Cheekwood will be the setting for a series of Friday night events that unfold as the sun drops behind the rolling hills of Nashville.   With musical acts of varying genres spread throughout the Garden, several different art exhibitions on view, and children’s activities in our studios, Cheekwood is the only place to be on the first Friday of every month.
