Cheekwood hosting Total Solar Eclipse viewing party


Cheekwood is hosting a viewing party for the highly anticipated Total Solar Eclipse this summer.

The "path of totality" for the eclipse will go through middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky, making for great viewing spots.

Cheekwood will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, August 21 for the eclipse. Admission will be half price.

“We are thrilled to be hosting a viewing party for this extremely rare natural phenomenon,” said Nathalie Lavine, director of education and public programs for Cheekwood. “As one of the most beautiful outdoor settings in Nashville, we hope both locals and tourists alike will come out and enjoy this once in a lifetime experience with us.”

The viewing party will feature special programming and featured entertainment, including food trucks, cash bars and live music. Cheekwood will also be offering protective eyewear for guests’ viewing.
