This year’s fourth annual Old School BBQ Festival promises to light up Nashville for residents and others from across the nation.

The mid-state’s capitol city (also known as Music City USA) will shine the last summer holiday of the season. It all goes down on Sunday, September 3, at Nashville’s Riverfront Park. The event opens at 2 pm, CDT, with safe, fun entertainment and festival fanfare continuing throughout the day.

The purpose of the festival is to create platforms from which the general public can come and retrieve life changing knowledge as it relates to health and wellness, technology, family intervention, financial literacy, professional career building and workforce development.

The annual festival provides complimentary vending space to those professionals who have an interest in providing complimentary service and or information in any of the aforementioned categories, which will further serve the community at large. The festival committee will provide complimentary tickets to various community resource agencies with a particular focus on battered women and domestic violence.

The entertainment lineup for this year includes the old school music sounds of Club Noveau, Al B. Sure, Musiq Soul Child, Klymaxx, Silkk the Shocker, 69 Boyz, Jon B., Joe Cooley and Rodney O.

The method of promoting the fourth annual Old School BBQ Festival is to present national award winning entertainment at low-ticket prices in efforts to reach the capacity of the facility. With operating expenses in excess of $100,000 per event, the success of the Old School BBQ Festival is dependent and contingent on sponsors, media partners, donations and the authorization to sell concessions. Participation of this nature brings the festival closer to their goal of breaking even, while educating the community.

The Labor Day Old School BBQ Festival is an inviting and multi-faceted, exciting event, which highlights the aroma of traditional soul food while cooking in the air. All the while, it brings families and friends together in an outdoor social setting, with all the key ingredients necessary for a pleasantly remembered day of reunion, information and live national award winning entertainment.
