Labor Day Weekend in Nashville, TN

Come mark summer’s long, soft landing with a Labor Day weekend getaway here at The Union Station Nashville Yards, offering preeminent luxury accommodations in the heart of Music City!

There’s plenty to do and see in Nashville, TN over that spiritual-end-of-summer holiday weekend, and rest assured we’ll shower you with suitably special hospitality here at our luxury boutique Marriott Autograph Collection hotel in the city’s exciting Nashville Yards district, right on the doorstep of downtown Music City.

Things to Do in Nashville Over Labor Day Weekend

From outdoor activities—it is still summertime, after all!—to live music and other entertainment, you’ll have your pick of activities on a Labor Day 2023 getaway to The Union Station Nashville Yards. Here are only some of the possibilities…

Take in a Bit of the Bard

On both Sunday, September 3rd and Monday, September 4th, you can catch performances of Much Ado About Nothing at The Yard at oneCITY (8 City Blvd) courtesy of the now-rather-venerable Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s Summer Shakespeare program.

Nashville in the year 1973 comes magically evoked in this spin on Shakespeare’s classic comedy, which is directed by the Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s Executive Artistic Director Denise Hicks and is free to enjoy (but with a suggested $10 donation).

Gates on both evenings open at 5:15 PM, followed by the Insight Lecture Series at 5:30 PM. The pre-show performances begin at 6 PM both nights, presenting Fire Phoenix Belly Dance on Sunday and YSA on Saturday, and the play gets underway at 7 PM.

(You can learn more about the history—and all-around awesomeness—of the Nashville Shakespeare Festival right here.)

Enjoy Live Music in Music City, USA for Labor Day Weekend

It shouldn’t come as much surprise that there’ll be live music aplenty on offer on and around Labor Day weekend this year in Nashville, which well earns its Music City nickname.

From Nickel Creek at the legendary Mother Church of Country Music, the Ryman Auditorium, for several nights starting on September 4th and the Australian Pink Floyd Show at FirstBank Amphitheater on September 3rd to the nightly tunes delivered via the famous Lower Broadway honky tonks and the Musicians Corner free concert on Friday night over at Centennial Park, a home base at The Union Station Nashville Yards sets you up downright deliciously for taking in a concert or two over the holiday weekend.

Get Outdoors to Enjoy Late Summer in Nashville, TN

The sun’s still shining, the weather’s still warm, and the day’s are still plenty long: all the reason to embrace the Labor Day stretch with some outdoor recreation during your Union Station Nashville Yards stay!

Rent a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard to ply the nearby waters of the Cumberland River, or stroll, jog, or bike your way along miles of Greater Nashville Greenways. From the riparian hardwoods of Shelby Bottoms and the shores of Old Hickory Lake to the hill country of Radnor Lake State Park and even—certainly day-trippable from The Union Station Nashville Yards—the naturally sculptured underground of Cumberland Caverns, you’re in sky’s-the-limit territory when it comes to adventuring in the beautiful natural landscapes in and around Music City.
