Hi.

My name is Catherine Courtney and I am a Nashville Native with a penchant for culinary creativity and epic travel adventures.  I'll admit... I also have a slight obsession with handbags.

I had the opportunity to attend the kick-off for one of the best food and wine festivals that South has to offer, the Music City Food and Wine Festival.   The fourth annual event will be held September 17 and 18 at Bicentennial Park.  

Trust me when I say that there is something for everyone.  If you are interested in culinary demonstrations, check out the demo tent where Tim Love  can give you tips on how to cook the perfect steak or hear Andrew Zimmern share his latest food adventures. 

If that’s not your scene and you are in the mood to eat and drink, you’re in luck.  Not only can you wander around the Grand Tasting area and sample bites from some of Nashville’s best , but there are various tasting sessions throughout the day that include Patron Tequlia, Belle Meade Bourbon and the latest craft beers from Blackberry Farm.  Take it from someone who’s been to this event over the past few years, wear comfortable clothing, conducive to copious amounts of consuming and imbibing.   If you find something that makes your taste buds scream with happiness, tag @blonde_voyage_nashville on Instagram so we can make sure we check it out and feature your photo!

One of my favorite events is Harvest Night.  Only in Nashville, can you eat amazing food from some of the best chefs around the country while listening to a live music curated by Kings of Leon.  I’ll let you in on a little secret, there are so many “special guests” that get pulled up on stage to perform that you won’t leave disappointed.  There’s a reason Nashville is called Music City.

In addition to this’s year amazing Sunday lineup, Pappy Hour has been added to the schedule. This event will feature an exclusive tasting with Preston Van Winkle from Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery. Bourbon lovers, this is one event that you won’t want to miss!  

If you are unsure that your waistline cannot commit to that much eating, you can always opt for a day pass for$150.00, while the serious eaters can get an all in pass for $500.00.  Get your tickets today as this is one event you don’t want to miss!
