The Land Trust's largest annual fundraiser.

Save the Date! October 30, 2021

Our Signature Celebration

Every fall, The Land Trust invites supporters to join us for Once in a Blue Moon – our largest fundraiser of the year, which raises critical funds to support The Land Trust’s mission to conserve the unique character of Tennessee’s irreplaceable landscapes.

Known for its signature ‘boots and jeans’ atmosphere, Once in a Blue Moon provides a welcoming platform for supporters to join a larger land conservation movement that directly impacts the quality of life for present and future generations of Tennesseans across the state. Here’s how The Land Trust re-imagined Once in a Blue Moon in 2020.

Tickets will be available early fall 2021. Check back here and follow us on social media @LandTrustTN for updates and more information.
