PARK(ing) Day is an internationally recognized event where parking spots in various cities and towns are transformed into pocket parks and parklets.
PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.
The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat… at least until the meter runs out!
---You Can Build A Parklet on PARK(ing) Day!---

Through the tour, members and guest will have an opportunity to hear from speakers that represent the civic and business community.

Everyone’s favorite Sunday Funday is back for the third year in a row! Join your friends from the Nashville Junior Chamber for the Third Annual Pedals & Pints, Nashville’s best salute to summer. This years’ theme is “Spring Break ’99,” so grab a fanny pack and your favorite snapback and meet us at Nashville Pedal Tavern for the wildest party of the year. Bikes start running at 11am, and tickets for this event will sell out fast, so jump on this while you have the chance!
But the bikes are just half the fun. Just like Spring Break, the party is never really over, so once your ride is done, be sure to join us for the official Pedals & Pints after party. (Location to be announced soon!) We know a couple hours on a bike isn’t enough for you, so get ready to hang with us until the sun goes down. In fact, our friends at Lyft even hooked us up with a discount code to get you there, so save 10% off 2 rides to or from the event with code “PEDSNPINTS”.
This year's “Pints Sponsor,” The Boston Beer Company, has provided plenty of beer and hard beverages for each bike, so unless you plan on drinking something else, all you have to bring is yourself and a kick-ass spring break outfit. (Bike rules are the same as the beach, leave the glass at home and you’ll be fine. Seriously. I’ll yell at you.)
*Make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before your bike is supposed to leave. Forms need to be signed, and I guarantee this rowdy group isn’t going to wait for you to catch up…
Why: Do we need a reason? Because what better way to salute summer than to pretend it’s spring break all over again.
Who: Anyone. Everyone. Own a tank top and enjoy being outside? You’re invited. Tell your friends!
Our favorite kickoff of the year involves drinks, snacks, socializing, and best of all, musical performances. RSVP required, check your email for an invitation or email email@example.com.
Stunning NASA visualizations, 6.5 million stars, and inner peace await at Yoga Under the Stars.
While normal yoga practices focus on finding inner peace, Yoga Under the Stars brings an outward shift to the experience. The stunning visuals displayed on the Sudekum Planetarium’s magnificent 63-foot dome inspire thought on the scale of the universe and humanity’s place within it.
The darkness combined with a 360-degree view of the stars can disorient some yogis making achieving balance an even more challenging activity... meaning it's perfect for intermediate-level yogis looking for a unique, new experience.
Each session will begin with breath work, continue with positions to elevate the heart, and end in savasana to relax the body and the mind.
Don't forget to BYOM - Bring Your Own Mat!
COST: $17 for ASC members; $22 for non-members
Spaces are limited - register in advance!
Yoga Under the Stars is held the last Saturday of each month in the Sudekum Planetarium, unless otherwise noted. Subject to change.

Come join us for this unique, signature event. Not only will the food and entertainment be top notch, there will be a live & silent auction full of must-have items and a few extra surprises!
Every dollar raised at Rhythm & Roses will go to helping the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation accomplish its mission to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.

Nashville Civic Design Center and the Frist Art Museum host PechaKucha - Vol. 29 with the theme of Architecture and Photography.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
PechaKucha Nashville is hosted by NCDC's Ron Yearwood, and features artwork by local artists on the posters created for each event.
