Community Events

One of the Program Division’s favorite aspects of what we do is to create fun and engaging events for the residents of our community.  Nothing pleases us more than seeing our hard work and preparations culminate in families spending quality time having fun together, sharing smiles and laughter.  Our department is proud to say that we offer, on average, around 60 Community Events per year in all corners of Williamson County.  Annual favorites include Father & Daughter Dances, Touch-A-Truck, Egg Hunts, Breakfast with Santa, Pool Parties, Halloween Events and many more.

Join us as we bring Nashville Shakespeare Festival's annual Shakespeare In the Parkproduction to Academy Park!
Love.  It is the dream that we want to be ensnared in.  Powerful and magical, but at it’s worst, a fickle illusion.   Shakespeare’s classical comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream explores the duality of love in a magical, transformative production that asks: if we are in love are we ever in control? So bring your blankets, chairs or just yourselves and join us for an enchanting evening of classical theater under the stars.
