a revelry of all things east
said, “Everything you can imagine is real.” Several years ago, we, the ladies of East-Centric, imagined a place where arts, music, and culture collide in East Nashville. As suggested, we imagined such a scene and called it “East-Centric.” In late 2012, fate would guise itself in a faint knock. How ever faint, it would be heard and answered. And so we became East-Centric Pavilion.
Located in the heart of East Nashville, East-Centric Pavilion was a new 2,800 sq ft. open-air arts & cultural center, events & music venue dedicated to bringing original events, public market days, festivals & concerts to the community to create a gathering place for all to experience all the arts, music, and culture the great city of Nashville has to offer as well as celebrate the emerging arts & cultural scene in East Nashville.
We still will take our concept and live it daily. We’ve been seen on Bravo's hit television series, Tabatha Takes Over, featured as one of Forbes Travel Guide's “must-do” in Nashville, coined the “innovative thinking helping to shape the area” bt Nashville ledger, highlighted in Nashville Arts Magazine, and created, marketed and managed a hot-spot that won the Nashville Chamber’s beautification award and what the Nashville Scene called ”one of the cities coolest and most intimate venues.” Our venue and business served as a hot spot for some of Nashville's most fabulous local events like Lightning 100's Music City Mayhem, Native Magazine's Cinco De Bik-O, Tomato Arts Fest's King & Queen Pageant, Martinis & Jazz, the Voodoo Swing Circus, YUM! East & more!
In addition to bringing some of the city's coolest, wackiest annual events to East Nashville, we at East-Centric also produce our own fun-time happenings and we are very proud of the success we've had this year with Olive or Twist: A Celebration of the Hand-crafted Libation, the East Nashville Honeybee Festival, The Eastside Brew Ha Ha (Craft Brew Festival), our weekly Live Jazz Brunch Market and Southern Drawl Bluegrass & Americana Festival. We're also excited to announce a number new happenings on the horizon like: Beethoven & Brews & The East Nashville Indie Film Festival!
East-Centric is dedicated to giving back to the community thru arts initiatives & programming as well as providing fundraising and monetary donations to other local organizations & non-profits who support the community. In 2013, East-Centric donated 35% of its gross revenue to local non-profits, schools and government groups.
