Cleverly timed to coincide with the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Springfield invites tourists and Tennesseans alike to come by the historic Courthouse Square on Saturday, June 8, for Taste of Country USA, with a chance to experience real country food, fun and music. In addition to a Corvette rally, a classic car show and a motorcycle ride around the county, the organizers plan plenty of fun family-related activities revolving around food and farming.
From the official announcement:
You’ll be able to hunt for treasures in the Historic District Yard Sale and see our local green thumbs at the Garden Tour. Plus, if you like Traditional Country music, this is the place to see our amazing local talent for free. There’ll be exciting, live Country and Bluegrass music throughout the day on our big Court House Stage.
Of course, what would a Taste of Country USA be without lots of good old-fashioned country cooking. So, we’re pulling out the stops to showcase Robertson County’s great eating places and wonderful home cooks. They’ll all be serving up their mouth-watering specialties and tasty treats with plenty of small town Southern charm.
Many farmers in Robertson County supply the fresh ingredients that help make Nashville restaurants good. Among the farmers represented are Gourmet Pasture Beef, Don Henry’s orchard in Cross Plains and G&G Family Dairy, which provide product to companies like Gabby’s Burgers, Marché, Tin Angel, Fido, Bongo Java, The Turnip Truck and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams.
If you'd like to meet the people who are the direct source of some of Nashville's best produce and products, here's your chance!
