WHILE YOU'RE ATTENDING
Spouses and guests will have the opportunity to attend a special program filled with adventures and activities throughout Nashville. The program begins on Saturday with an opening reception including cocktails and dinner. Sunday kicks-off with a brunch and visit to the historic Ryman Auditorium. That evening is a world-class dinner cruise on the General Jackson paddle wheeler.
On Monday, venture to Franklin, Tennessee to visit a Civil War battlefield, and restored Southern plantation house. Attendees will enjoy lunch at the iconic Pucketts Grocery, followed by some leisurely shopping and discovery in Franklin. To wrap up, the group will head over Arrington Vineyards for some wine tasting and head back to Nashville for dinner.
Saturday, November 3rd
5:30pm - 9:00pm
Join us for our welcome reception and dinner after you check-in where you'll meet old friends and new. Then enjoy a night out in downtown Nashville with its vibrant scene of honky-tonks, bars, and riverfront. It's all a walk away from our hotel.
Sunday, November 4th
11:00am - 10:00pm
Sleep in Sunday morning, if you'd like. Then join our special program that starts at 11:00am, where you'll begin with brunch-mixer and Bloody Mary bar. Then saunter over to the Ryman Auditorium for a special backstage tour of this iconic Nashville landmark. Once a cathedral, Ryman has been home to visits from some of the world's most famous dignitaries and performers and to the Grand Ole Opry for over 30 years. End your day with a relaxing dinner cruise on the Cumberland River aboard the General Jackson showboat.
Monday, November 5th
9:30am - 6:30pm
A short ride from Nashville is the beautiful and historic down of Franklin. Site of a
famous Civil War battle, Franklin is now home to quaint shops and restaurants and to country music celebrities just mixing in. We'll leave in the morning for a tour of Carnton, a plantation house turned into a field hospital during the Battle of Franklin. Carnton is the basis for the award-winning novel, "The Widow of the South".
Following lunch at GRAYS on Main in Franklin, you'll have a little time to explore the cool little shops on Main Street. The day's not over because our bus will then transport us to nearby beautiful Arrington Vineyards for a late afternoon wine tasting of some very good locally made wine. Finally, we'll head back to Nashville for dinner on your own and time to enjoy some night life with friends.
Tuesday, November 6th
8:00am - 6:30pm
While your other half is wrapping up their sessions, you'll have one last chance to go sight- seeing or squeeze in some shopping. Lunch will be your choice - on your own, with friends, or at the symposium. Whatever you choose, you won't go wrong. Officially, it's all wrapped up at 1:00 PM, but feel free to linger.
