Flatrock Music and Arts Festival 

When: Sat., May 28, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2011
Woodbine! Jewel of the South Nashville quadrant! Friend to the white bean and the taco truck! Home of the city’s largest residential collection of Airstream trailers! Behind those manicured lawns lies a seething jungle of cutthroat karaoke, community involvement mixers and progressive parties. And before there was Woodbine, there was the community of Flatrock — whose name neighborhood organizers have borrowed for this yearly festival of food, music, art and automobiles. The fourth annual festival gets a huge boost from the just-opened Woodbine Farmers Market, held Saturday mornings through October in Coleman Park and offering local goods ranging from basil-infused lemonade to artisanal breads, coffees and cheeses. Stop by organizer Mary Crimmins’ adorable Airstream trailer dispensing Middle Tennessee dairy products — it’s called the Dairy-Air — then stick around for a full day’s celebration. Bluegrasser Randy Kohrs and legendary Nashville musician Buzz Cason command the stage, along with Boomerang, Corazon, Justyna Kelley, Sara Jean Kelley and Excuses. As you watch (or dance, if your balance is keen), snack on treats such as Vietnamese and Cuban sandwiches, barbecue, tacos, ice cream and fried chocolate pies from area businesses, then peruse some 65 artisan booths and a show of vintage cars. Admission is free.
