Small Town, Big Soul... Welcome to Manchester Tennessee!

Manchester embodies the spirit of Tennessee, deep-rooted in the soul of America and flowing through the heart of the Volunteer State. It doesn't take long after hitting the backroads to realize you’re in “God’s Country;” you’ll find bucolic, rolling hills, a pivotal history, and the sweet ripe taste of Southern hospitality around every bend. Pre-Prohibition distilleries, the sacred Old Stone Fort, and the hundreds of musicians who have graced the stages of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival have all left their mark on the community, its history woven into the fabric of the nation, telling a story of artisan pride and Southern virtue sprinkled with the subtle smell of sour mash and Tennessee whiskey.

It's easy for you to lose yourself in the shadows of mountains or on limestone trails that lead to cascading waterfalls. Or perhaps you’re just here to sip the smooth wines of Beans Creek, soak up the community spirit that emanates through Bonnaroo’s 600 acres, or walk in the footsteps of Jack and George. Either way, we invite you to experience a little of everything; Manchester is, after all, Made in Tennessee.
