What is the history of the Salty Dog Festival?
Formally the Arts & Antiques Festival, the Salty Dog Festival has evolved to include food trucks, music, vendors and artists from the Middle Tennessee area. The clever name “Salty Dog” originated from Kasper Mansker’s discovery of two salt licks in Goodlettsville, along with our community’s love for their furry family members. Dogs are welcomed at the festival.
