Spring is the perfect time to start eating more seafood. Who doesn't like indulging in some warm-weather fare that reminds them of being at the beach? If you wondering where to check out the best seafood in Nashville, you might want to head to one of the most exciting festivals of the season.
The East Nashville Crawfish Bash is back for its sixth year, and it's going down on May 23 at East Park in Nashville, Tennessee. It will run from noon to 9 p.m. Admission is free, so you can save your money and spend it on seafood instead.
However, if you want to take the experience to the next level, you can buy a VIP ticket for $80. This will get you unlimited crawfish (plus corn and potatoes) as well as unlimited boozy drinks from the VIP bar.
When you go with the VIP option, you'll also have access to a t-shirt, an air-conditioned bathroom trailer and the VIP area. It may be worth it if you really want to go all out.
Don't love crawfish? Don't worry about being stuck with nothing to eat. There is going to be a wide variety of seafood options from the gulf, so if you like seafood at all, you'll almost certainly find something you want to eat.
There are going to be breweries and distilleries at this event as well, so you're in luck if you're looking for something to wash all that seafood down with.
Don't forget to check out the regional musical acts that will be performing at this event. It will give you a nice break from eating all day long.
If you can't wait for all of the most exciting Nashville food festivals going down this year, you may want to put this seafood festival at the top of your list.
