How to celebrate ‘615 Day’ in Kingston Springs

The Kingston Springs Gazette invites you to join us on Saturday, June 15 for a celebration of our 615 community, culture, and connection in South Cheatham. 


In partnership with Fred & Mary's Home, we are thrilled to present an all-day extravaganza that captures the essence of the South Cheatham community. A plethora of local businesses and nonprofits will be offering free events for 615 Day in Kingston Springs and Pegram. 


Stroll the town’s biggest farmer's market of the year; join in on $10 outdoor yoga classes at Alma Yoga and Movement; take a guided hike through the Harpeth River State Parks; and don’t miss out on the free, local bluegrass concert.


Our comprehensive city guide is your roadmap to 615 Day in Kingston Springs. Discover the array of family-friendly events – and special 615 Day deals available from our small businesses – to support local on June 15. 


Welcome to 615 Day – welcome to South Cheatham.


Morning

Alma Yoga & Movement - Perfect place to start. You won’t regret starting your day at a discounted, outdoor yoga class at Alma! On 615 Day, owners Kat and Silas will offer $10 yoga classes. There will be an outdoor strength class at 7:15 a.m. and an outdoor express vinyasa class at 8:30 a.m. In-studio, trainer Stephanie will offer HER Strength at 10 a.m. and kids yoga with Savannah will take place at 11 a.m. You can book your discounted spot for 615 Day here. Silas and Kat opened the beautiful, heated studio together located on Main Street in downtown Kingston Springs in February 2023. @almayogamvmt 


Turnbull Provisions - Next stop, coffee of course. This corner cafe has truly been a cornerstone in Kingston Springs since 2021. Owned by Amy and Cole Bruce, the local entrepreneurs at SKYKING PIZZA, the pastries are baked in-house every morning and you’ll find local goods and foods inside too. For 615 Day, Turnbull will be offering its famous cinnamon roll paired with a coffee for $6.15 while supplies last. Amy’s famous cinnamon rolls usually sell out, so be sure to stop in when they’re open on 615 Day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. @turnbullprovisions


Fred & Mary’s Home - This colorful and charming homewares shop is laid out like a real home, and everything is for sale from the lights on the ceiling to the rugs on the floor. All of their goods are sustainably and ethically made, and you’ll also find carefully curated vintage pieces and low-waste cleaning products. For 615 Day, you’ll get 6% off when you spend $50 and 15% off when you spend $100. Pop in and say hello to Carolyn Fredericks, owner of the shop, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. She and her partner @carolinewalkup, an interior designer with Nashville roots, opened their sister-shops in Kingston Springs and Wilmington, N.C., at the end of 2023. @fredandmarys Oh, and be sure to not miss the adoptable kittens that will be inside, courtesy of our friends at the Cheatham County Animal Shelter.  


Ewe & Company - This locally owned yarn shop has been serving the Kingston Springs community since 2010. Pop in between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and say hello to the store’s owner, Glenna, who can guide you to her luxury yarn shop offerings including local handspun yarns. Be sure to enter the 615 Day raffle for your chance to win a $25 gift card and a Fair Trade African market basket from Ewe & Company! @eweandcompany 


Farmers & Artisans Market - Lucky for you, 615 Day falls on Kingston Springs’ farmer’s market day! Here you’ll find local foodie favorites such as Harpeth Moon (@harpethmoonfarm), Be Good Juice Co. (@begoodjuiceco), and La Bella Tavola (@labellatavola), as well as a variety of local artists and makers from 9 a.m. to noon at the lot across the railroad tracks on Main Street. Food trucks too! The June 15 market will be the biggest of the year as the town has added extra booths for local vendors in celebration of 615 Day. Make sure to buy a $15 raffle ticket that will enter you in the running to win more than a dozen goods from local businesses. All raffle ticket proceeds will be donated to the Cheatham County Animal Shelter


Dogs and Donuts - While you’re at the farmer’s market, be sure to give a pat to the good adoptable dogs from the Cheatham County Animal Shelter. Grab a donut and say hello to the shelter’s volunteers, who can tell you all about how to get involved in puppy and kitten fostering as well as dog walking. 


Afternoon

LL Burns Park - Bringing the kids with you? Take a break from the eating and shopping to visit the playground and the (free!) splash pad at LL Burns Park. The track is great for biking, running, or walking. You can play frisbee golf or bring your rod and catch some fish at the park’s pond or on the bank of the Harpeth River. 


Harpeth River State Park - This 615 Day, we’re partnering with Friends of the Harpeth River State Park to offer a 615 Day hike with Park Ranger Kevin Markuson at Mound Bottom State Archaeological Area at 10 a.m. The cost to reserve your spot will be donated to Friends of the Harpeth River State Park. If you’d rather dip your toes in the water, head to Tip-A-Canoe or Foggy Bottom to rent canoes and kayaks. They’ll deal with the boats and the paddles, you bring the snacks and the good vibes! 


The Yorkshire Deli - Speaking of snacks, you can’t miss Kingston Springs’ farm-to-table meets British tea room! You’ll be transported with their authentic baked treats and gorgeous al fresco table settings. Conveniently located next to the most popular river access spots on Highway 70, The Yorkshire Deli is open on 615 Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or plan ahead and book a 3 p.m. afternoon tea reservation by noon on June 13 to save your spot. The Deli also has a great grab-and-go selection of food and drinks (don’t miss your chance to snag their best selling scratch made spreads!) @theyorkshirefarmdeli 


Wonder Gift & Garden - Located at The Land next to the Deli, Wonder Gift & Garden opened in September to offer the community a variety of native plants and gardening materials as well as local art and gifts. Wonder is the epitome of supporting local, with vendors that sell house plants to upcycled kids’ clothing to cedar furniture. Be sure to stop in between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. and grab a trinket to commemorate 615 Day in Kingston Springs! @wondergiftgarden


West Glow Farm - Prefer to do something more relaxing and hands on? Head to Kingston Springs’ West Glow Farm on 615 Day for a sourdough making class from 1 to 3 p.m. Learn to make sourdough bread with baker Ben Bahil from Sourdough Nashville. Everyone will go home with a starter and recipe. Light snacks and beverages will be served. Hurry! This event usually sells out. Reserve your spot for 615 Day now! Be sure to also say hello to West Glow at the farmer’s market, where every $25 you spend you’ll get 6.15% off. @westglowfarm


Mud Puddle Pottery - This pottery studio in Pegram has been offering an outlet for locals to be creative for more than 20 years. On 615 Day, the owner, Sharon, will be donating 15% of her pottery’s proceeds to the Cheatham County Animal Shelter. If you’re feeling creative, stop into @mudpuddlepottery on 615 Day for a coppersmithing jewelry workshop! Participants will create a neck cuff and their choice of a pair of earrings. Reserve your spot today. 


Evening

SKYKING PIZZA - SKYKING is a local and tourist favorite! Voted one of the best pizzas in Tennessee by the Washington Post in 2023, this wood-fired pizzeria has been a Main Street staple since 2013. Last year, owners Amy and Cole Bruce added a cozy cocktail bar for a more authentic feel. Be sure to stop in on 615 Day from 5 to 9 p.m. for their special deals, including a 615 Day specialty pizza made from local ingredients, a 615 Day cocktail, and a $6.15 cookie skillet (no need to share desserts with this discount!) @skykingpizza


The Fillin’ Station - You won’t want to pass up the good times on a Saturday night at The Fillin’ Station. One of Kingston Springs’ original Main Street businesses since 2003, the community’s local pub offers a great price on beers, cocktails, and one of the best burgers you’ve ever had. With live music nearly every night, there’s no better way to close out 615 Day than at The Fillin’ Station. Open till 11 p.m. on weekends, be sure to pop in for a nightcap after you fill up on pie.    


Bluegrass concert - Lucky for us (and you!) local bluegrass band, The Spontaneous Mountain Boys, will be putting on a free 615 Day concert at 7 p.m. at the Kingston Springs United Methodist Church on Main Street. Featuring local guest fiddle player, Gretchen Priest-May with Pegram’s Fiddle & Pick, the night will present traditional tunes, original songs, and prizes and jokes the whole family will love!
