Chattanooga had a very wet, mild winter. Spring is here a little early and promises to be a typical, if not a warmer than average one, according to the “Farmer”. Everyone is out en force enjoying the sunshine and the blooms that are popping up everywhere. Of course, this weekend offer plenty of St. Patrick’s day fun, but there is plenty of other fun as well. With the weekend promising good weather, here are your best bets for fun in Chattanooga.
The Chattery Turns FIVE!
The Chattery is one of Chattanooga’s best kept secret. Offering classes for adults to learn everything from macrame to how to budget your money, the classes are taught by locals who have a talent and the time to share. Friday, The Chattery turns 5 with a big party to celebrate. With a carnival theme, the event is held at the very cool Palace Theater and features cocktails from The Bitter Alibi , games, and music from DJ CPRO. Rumor is there is going to be a major announcement and prizes! (Count us in, we love surprises and prizes!) Friday, 6-9 pm 818 Georgia Ave
St Chatty’s Day Parade
Chattanooga is not a small town anymore, but we do parades as well as any small town in America. The St. Chatty’s day parade, which started as a small parade that traveled about 4 blocks in North Chattanooga is now one of the city’s biggest parades. This year, the parade route travels Main Street to Market and ends at Miller Park. Full of locals, politicians, dogs, families and even a piper band, this is almost as eclectic as the MainX24 parade and just as fun. Parade starts at 1 pm. We’ve got a piper down, I repeat, we’ve got a piper down. (Couldn’t resist.)
Maama Tried: All Female Art Show
Chattanooga Brewing is hosting Maama Tried, all-female art show featuring work from local artists Morgan Oostra, Ady Caloca, Alana Questell, Meri Wright, and Alecia Vera Buckles. Featuring music by DJ Ian “Ian F” F, you can drink craft beer and enjoy some of the coolest art in town. There’s no cover for this event, but there is a $5 donation for the artists to help support their continued work. Saturday, March 16th 7-11 pm 1804 Chestnut St.
Whose Live Anyway
If you are like me and love improv comedy, you will love Whose Live Anyway. With audience participation the key, this show promises to not only be hilarious but random. Based on audience suggestions, the four actor/comedians perform songs and scenes on the fly. Tickets are still available online or at the box office. $24.50 each 8:00 pm Saturday 709 Broad Street.
We hope you have an amazing weekend! Get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
