Things to Do In Nashville TN in JanuaryJanuary is often thought to be a quiet month, when the cold winds blow and the ice sometimes coats the roadways of Tennessee. After the merry chaos of the holiday season dies down, many people choose to settle in for the duration of the winter. However, the noise never truly quiets in the heart of Music City. Nashville residents and visitors alike still enjoy to get out and live life to the fullest.

The 2019 boat show will take place from January 10 through January 13 at the Music City Center.

There also is a swap meet at the event each year, where hobbyists can swap and trade for the items that they need to keep working on their cars.
