Spring is in the air, and the annual Buttercup Festival is back for its twenty-second year! This free one-day event that attracts thousands will return on April 10th from 12pm to 6pm in the downtown Historic District of Nolensville. The Buttercup Festival committee chair Debbie Suttmiller said, “we’re excited to again present, for the twenty-second year, this wonderful free festival that the whole family can enjoy.” All the proceeds from the festival are donated to local charities and also supports their scholarship awards.
In addition to the one-of-a-kind shops of the Historic District that will offer sales throughout the day, the festival will have over one hundred artisan vendors lined up throughout the downtown Historic District. There will be food trucks with unique offerings and festival food ranging from BBQ, burgers and hot dogs, and homemade ice cream.

Live musical entertainment will take place behind the Homeplace Bed & Breakfast, where local musicians will perform throughout the day.
