NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville CARES is proud to announce the 28th Annual Nashville AIDS Walk. The Nashville AIDS Walk is Tennessee’s oldest continuously running HIV/AIDS fundraiser and one of the city’s highest profile events. This year’s goal is to raise $200,000 to help end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Middle Tennessee. The event takes place on Saturday, October 5 at Public Square Park.
The Nashville AIDS Walk is much more than just a Walk! This year, in partnership with Good Neighbor Festivals (producers of Tomato Art Fest, Sevier Park Fest, Nashville Pride, and more), we’ve got a fantastic festival experience planned, including Live Music, Kids & Family Fun, Food Trucks and Bars, Great Vendors, and of course, the AIDS Walk itself. During the event you can Brunch For CARES with an upgraded ticket. The brunch will include delicious food, Bloody Marys, Mimosas, seating, private restrooms and more with a great view of the event’s live entertainment. You can purchase brunch tickets at nashvilleaidswalk.com.
This event will be fun for the whole family!

Our Mission: Nashville CARES mission is to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Middle Tennessee. We work to achieve this through education, advocacy and support for those at risk for or living with HIV.
Our vision is a community where HIV infections are rare, and when they do occur, everyone with HIV/AIDS has access to the care, treatment and support to achieve optimal health and self-sufficiency without stigma or discrimination.
Last year Nashville CARES served more than 50,000 Middle Tennesseans infected and affected by HIV/AIDS including: HIV prevention education to more than 29,000 youth and adults, more than 10,000 FREE confidential HIV tests, and essential support services to 3,400 men, women and children living with the disease.
