Saturday, March 12
Whether your roots run green or not, the Music City Irish Fest is a wonderful cultural experience in Nashville.

One important part of every sports enthusiast’s spring is the madness this month brings. The SEC men’s basketball tournament will be held in the Bridgestone Arena this year, and you have five days of games for claiming your seat. Whether you hope to see the big orange with the trophy this year, pulling for the ‘Dores, or just want to see if Calipari will get ejected from another game, you should make it out to this tournament.

Feeling festive? The St. Patty’s Day Kegs and Eggs event offers both a 5K and a 10K that is more than just running. This race runs through downtown and encourages everyone to bust out their greenest costume! (Because who wants to get pinched while running?) If you need additional motivation to reach the finish line, remember that the end holds beer and other goodies for you. To register for the race, click here.
Friday, March 4 – Saturday, March 5
“Sangria” singer Blake Shelton will be performing back-to-back nights at the Bridgestone this month. The Voice star will have his tour running through summer, but what better city to see him in than the home of country music? If you want to get your ticket to Blake’s show, click here. (But no guarantees his love interest Gwen Stefani will be there.)
Wednesday, March 9
This month’s top pick for events to attend is Rally on the Runway. The Rally Foundation’s mission to raise money for childhood cancer research, and this event pairs the heart of the organization with providing these kids with a chance to shine. Famous athletes, such as the Kansas City Chiefs’ Dustin Colquitt and Carolina Panthers’ Cortland Finnegan will escort these courageous models down the runway. If you would like to attend the event or make a contribution to this cause, click here.
