These are the best July events taking place in Nashville this year:
Let Freedom Sing! July 4th in Music City
Nashville has earned a reputation for having one of the best patriotic parties to celebrate Independence Day.

Let Freedom Sing! is a family-friendly event event that takes place all day, and includes activities such as water slides, games and climbing walls. The live music is the perfect complement to the party, and this year's lineup includes performers such as Brett Eldredge, Jessy Wilson, Mac McAnally and Dylan Scott. As darkness settles over Nashville, the night is completed with a performance by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and a synchronized fireworks display designed to wow people of all ages.

18th Annual Music City Brewer's Festival
Beer loves from around the country have found the Music City Brewer's Festival to be one of the best beer festivals in the United States.
