Free Family Day @ Frist

Enjoy a fun-filled day of excitement with friends and family including special art-making activities, storytelling, live music, and dance performances.

The Society of Creative Anachronism will be on hand through the afternoon in the Grand Lobby for discussions of medieval armored combat, fiber arts and illumination.

Medieval Dances are scheduled hourly in the Rechter Room, beginning at 1:30 p.m.

The Centennial Recorder Consort will perform in the Grand Lobby at 1:30 and 3:00 p.m.

Upstairs, in the Art Library and Resource Center, younger visitors will enjoy Story Time: Magic in the Margins: a Medieval tale of Bookmaking, with sessions at 1:45 and 4:00 p.m.

Medieval Combat Monty Python Style will be demonstrated and taught by Nashville Children’ s Theatre teaching artist Eric Pasto-Crosby in the auditorium at 2:00 and 3:30 p.m. Visitors will learn hand-to-hand “combat” moves and put them together in Monty Python-esque skits.

Art activites, including the creation of medieval medallions, reliquaries, and illuminated letters will be available through the afternoon in Martin ArtQuest and Studios A, B and C on the Upper Level.
