Lifestyle magazine Southern Living will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a celebration in Nashville slated for Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 1-5.

Titled Nashville Now, the weekend will include an array of culinary events, showcases from local fashion designers, and songwriter rounds. Additionally, there will be garden tours, art shows, and events featuring local boutique shops.

In addition, Southern Living collaborated with Goo Goo and Tennessee Brew Works for Nashville Now on limited edition flavors to commemorate the 50th anniversary: The Hummingbird Premium Goo Goo and Tennessee Brew Works’ Wildflower Honey Blonde Ale.

“We are thrilled to be working with the city of Nashville – it’s one of our favorite Southern cities and a great example of how the South is continuously evolving but also celebrating its roots,” said Southern Living Editor Sid Evans. “And what better way to celebrate our 50th anniversary than by partnering with two iconic Nashville brands? They both make products that are beloved by Southerners, and we look forward to sharing these limited editions with the Southern Living audience.”

“Nashville has relied on Southern Living to carry our message to consumers for decades,” said Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. “We are honored they wanted to work with us and pleased with the opportunity to showcase our music, food and fashion as part of their 50th anniversary.”

An event schedule and visitor packages will be announced in coming weeks.
