When the sky goes dark over Nashville on August 21, Trevecca will mark the first total eclipse over Tennessee in more than 500 years with a once-in-a-lifetime family friendly celebration picnic.

As the largest city wholly within the path of the eclipse, Nashville will be a prime viewing location for the solar event, for scientists and citizens alike. So, mark your calendars to join us for SolarFest on Trevecca’s Great Lawn—the perfect viewing location for you and your family.

Not only will you have a clear view of the sky and comfortable place to sit, but Trevecca will supply viewing glasses and more to make sure you don’t miss a moment of the total eclipse.

At SolarFest, you’ll get the opportunity to learn about the science behind the eclipse. Astronomers, Trevecca faculty members and student researchers will be on hand to answer questions, and you’ll get to see real-time data and images from Trevecca’s solar radio telescope and solar telescopes.

In addition, Dr. Matthew Huddleston, professor of physics, and his students also plan to launch a stratospheric research balloon between 12:30 and 1 p.m., with real-time tracking and data on display during SolarFest.

In addition to learning about all the science behind the once-in-a-lifetime total eclipse, when the moon completely overshadows the sun, SolarFest is also a family friendly picnic. The event will include food trucks, live music, games and free ice cream. Please bring lawn chairs and blankets!

Eclipse viewing glasses will be available for the first 800 guests at Trevecca’s SolarFest event. The glasses will be distributed at a clearly marked table on the Great Lawn, and visitors must check in there to receive the free glasses. No glasses will be distributed prior to 11:30 a.m., when the event begins. Each party must be present to receive glasses.

When: August 21, 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: The Great Lawn, situated between Greathouse Science Building and Waggoner Library
What: A picnic celebration marking the first total solar eclipse over Nashville in more than 500 years, complete with food trucks, fun and science.

Welcome and Introductions

Dr. Matthew Huddleston, along with Trevecca faculty, students and visiting professors, will provide a historical background for the once-in-a-lifetime celestial event as well as explain why the total eclipse is scientifically important and what exactly we can expect to see when the moon, sun and earth all align. Food trucks will be ready to serve at 11:30 a.m.

Balloon Basics

As the partial eclipse begins, Trevecca faculty members will explain some of the data from solar and solar radio telescopes that will be shown on large screens throughout the event.

How to View the Eclipse Safely

As the sky continues to darken, Dr. Huddleston will offer a few safety tips about how to view the eclipse. With totality quickly approaching, he'll also explain what to expect when the sun's light is completely blocked. 

1:27 p.m.

At this moment, Nashville will slip into total darkness as the total eclipse begins. Everything will go quiet as we experience this once-in-a-lifetime event. Totality is expected to last approximately 2 minutes.

About the conference

What is a master counselor and how do I become one? This workshop explores the factors, traits, and skills that distinguish extraordinary practitioners from those who are merely competent. Based on interviews conducted over the last decade with more than 100 of the world’s most prominent, theoreticians, therapists and counselors, Jeffrey will highlight personal qualities and seminal attributes that make the greatest difference. As much as what we do with clients, and apart from any favored interventions, it is who we are as human beings that is so influential and powerful. It isn’t just what we do that matters most but who we are. In addition, it is the clinician’s ability to master the intricacies of storytelling, both to hold and honor clients’ narratives, as well as increase power and influence through the medium of sharing tales of courage, resilience, and life lessons.
