How the summer is going to play out in the Music City has been pretty up in the air, but with non-essential businesses and other retailers opening back up, would-be adventurers and Nashville residents have a new silver-lining on the road to normalcy. Nashville is one of the busiest places when it comes to the 4th of July, but that might change this year. The popular Nashville Tennessee 4th of July celebration will likely be held off until 2021.
Nashvilleannounced in a news briefing Thursday, April 30, that 2020’s 4th of July is likely to see a cancellation. The annual celebration brought a total of 343,000 people together in 2019 alone.

“The reality is…it’s probably unlikely,” said Cooper, “That’s a large social gathering, that’s hundreds of thousands of people.”
