It’s the event that Cookeville (and surrounding areas!) look forward to that signals the coming of the greatest season of the year… CityScape’s Fall FunFest, where we round up our siblings, our kids, and our friends to gather on Cookeville’s Historic Downtown to celebrate the coming of fall with handmade crafts, local vendors, incredible food, and foot tapping to the live musical performances on Main Street.
This year at the Fall FunFest, you’ll get the opportunity to enjoy menu items from six new food trucks along with our recognized local food truck favorites. With plenty of snack and meal options to choose from, you can grab a bite to eat, enjoy the music, and watch the downtown light up as we celebrate the upcoming season as a community. This two-day festival features performances on Friday, Sept. 10 with Great Peacock at 6 p.m. and The Lone Bellow at 8 p.m. Then, on Saturday, Sept. 11, you’ll enjoy live shows featuring Ethan Ballinger at 2 p.m., Smooth Hound Smith at 4 p.m., Charlie Worsham at 6 p.m., and The Steeldrivers at 8 p.m.
