Gather with friends in the stunning Beer Garden each weekend during Cheekwood Harvest. Natural beauty and easy elegance define the space, where lively full-band sets are accompanied by seasonal beers, craft cocktails, and local food trucks. Sundays feature award-winning instrumentalists from the Nashville Musicians Association playing jazz of all types. Grab a picnic table or bring a blanket, and kick back to enjoy a perfect day amongst the pumpkins and chrysanthemums.

Tuesday Through Saturday
Beginning Tuesday, September 5, TOTS returns to five days a week. Join us in the Bracken Foundation Children’s Garden Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 am – 12 pm for hands-on activities, storytimes, and the new crowd favorite Turtle Talks, now at 11:45. The engaging weekly projects draw from the beauty of the fall season and the surrounding pumpkins and mums. TOTS will learn about Japanese Moon Viewing and can enjoy a visit from Rachel Rodriguez on October 24 to get excited about El Día de los Muertos. A visit to TOTS isn’t complete without a stop at the PNC Living Library, where you’ll find baskets filled with fun interactive items that spark learning about themes including Things with Wings, Elements of Art, Our Sky and Weather, and so much more. Spend a morning exploring and learning at Cheekwood!
TOTS! will run Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM from September 5 – October 28 before taking a break for the winter months.
TOTS! is for children accompanied by an adult. This program is geared towards toddlers, but all are welcome to join.
