Gather your friends, drape yourself in yellow and make plans to attend NPT’s sixth annual Big Yellow Bird Bash on Saturday, April 1, from 7 to 10 p.m. The event takes place at Houston Station in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood and is for fans and supporters of Nashville Public Television, especially those who grew up watching programs like “Sesame Street” and who care about the next generation of public television viewers. Proceeds support NPT’s educational, cultural and civic programming.
Big Yellow Bird Bash attendees are encouraged to dress in yellow attire – from formal to spirited ‒ and pose for photographs on NowPlayingNashville.com’s Yellow Carpet upon arrival. The evening includes dancing, light bites and cocktails, and a silent auction.
Silent auction items include:
- Nashville Predators (autographed jersey & 4 tickets to game)
- Nashville Zoo behinds-the-scenes tour
- Tennessee Crossroads local on-shoot with crew
- Indigo Hotel (one-night stay)
- Ona Ultimate Skincare gift certificate
