Spring is on the way and the Annual Buttercup Festival in Nolensville is back for its 20th year! This free one-day event that attracts thousands will return April 13th from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. in the downtown Historic District of Nolensville. In the case of severe weather, the festival will be held on April 20th.
“We’re excited to again present, for the 20th year, this wonderful free festival that the whole family can enjoy,” said the Buttercup Festival Committee chair Debbie Suttmiller.
In addition to the unique shops of the Historic District offering sales throughout the day, the festival will have over 100 artisan vendors lined up from Old Clovercroft Road to the Nolensville Feed Mill. Food vendors will offer festival food ranging from BBQ, burgers and hot dogs to shrimp and homemade ice cream. Southern Hospitality Diner will also be open and serving food throughout the entire day.
Live musical entertainment will take place behind the Homeplace Bed & Breakfast and local musicians will perform throughout the day. Stay tuned to the Historic Nolensville Buttercup Festival Facebook page for the map and stage schedule.
