If you didn’t get your Moon River Festival tickets yesterday, fear not. There are so many live music opportunities in Chattanooga that you won’t feel the sting of FOMO for too long. Coming up in the next few months, Deer Tick, Of Montreal, The Mavericks, Fitz and the Tantrums and more will grace the stages and theaters of Chattanooga. In the meantime, you can catch local musicians this weekend and they battle for the top billing spot at the Nightfall Concert Series that begin in May. Looking for fun things going on in Chattanooga this weekend? Here are your best bets.
Catch some of the top local talent of Chattanooga Saturday night as they battle for the top spot at this summer’s nightfall concert series. Caney Creek Company, Lenox Hills, Sunsap, The Foothills and Hive Theory will perform short sets at the new venue, The Signal on the Southside. Tickets are $10 and the show is all ages. Great way to check out some local talent. 1810 Chestnut. 8pm.
The Glass Menagerie
Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie is being performed at the Chattanooga Theater Centre. One of the most compelling (and semi-autobiographical) of Williams’ plays, this interpretation promises to be excellent. The show is Friday, Saturday and Sunday and tickets are available. Located on the North Shore, The Chattanooga Theater Centre is home to one of the best local theater performances in the area, with upcoming shows such as Hello Dolly! and A Year with Frog and Toad coming soon. Grab dinner and catch a show on what promises to be a gray and rainy Saturday. 400 River Street.
Mountain to Town Biking
Spend 2 hours on Saturday riding down a mountain. You read that right, down a mountain! Chattanooga is fortunate to have excellent hiking and biking trails all within minutes of downtown. On Saturday you can join Outdoor Chattanooga and ride down Lookout Mountain to the Chattanooga Riverwalk. This beginner and family friendly event features a ride down the Guild Trail to St. Elmo and then onto the Tennessee Riverwalk. With two trips offered, you can do it twice! $25 per person which includes bike, helmet, transportation and guide. Details can be found online.
If you have cabin fever, have no fear! We are just a few weeks away from the Chattanooga Market opening. Saturday’s family street festivals at West Village are ongoing all through the spring into the summer months. The trails are open and have been recently cleared, making it the perfect time to head out for a walk, hike, bike or run.
We love Chattanooga year round and know tons of fun things to do, every single day, rain or shine! Give us a call! We would love to share our city with you!
