From mega-conferences to Nashville bachelorette parties, our city is a hot destination. There are countless options for large groups and budgets, but smaller groups make up the majority of events in town. You and your guests may be well-acquainted with Nashville favorites like the Pedal Tavern, the General Jackson and tours of all of the historic homes. Here are some of our event ideas that don’t usually lead the lists of “top Nashville tourist attractions” for corporate retreats, Nashville bachelor and bachelorette weekends, and every smaller group in between.
Cheese Making Class
With hands-on and hands-off options, venture out to Standing Stone Farms for a private cheese making class. Beginners will learn how to make sweet cream butter, ricotta and mozzarella. The informative BYOB class is as fun as it is tasty. Purchase the farm's cheese making kit as a takeaway for guests. Check out Standing Stone Farms.
We aren’t talking about Reba, Kenny, Carrie or Garth. We’re talking about Orion and the Dippers. Just a short drive outside of Nashville, your group can scope out constellations. Spice up the night with a spiked hot chocolate bar or s’mores buffet. Head on over to Sudekum Planetariaum.
Wine Tasting Class
You don’t have to trek out to the countryside for the best grapes in town. Host a wine tasting (and soon, winemaking!) class at City Winery, just blocks from Broadway. Drinking on an empty stomach won’t be an issue, after your guests drool over their food options.
White Water Rafting
Thrill your guests as you tackle the rapids of the Ocoee River together. Talk about a bonding experience. Looking for a relaxing ride? Opt for a canoe or float trip instead. Find more information at Ocoee Adventure Center.
Nashville Escape Game
Race against the clock as your team works together to break out of a room full of puzzles and codes within one hour. Room themes range from Nashville attractions to secret missions. Check our their site for a video that will get your adrenaline pumping before you even pull in the parking lot. Click here for information.
Sing Your Hearts Out
Co-write a song with one of Nashville’s top songwriters and record the demo in a Music Row studio. You might not sound like George Straight or Martina McBride, but you’ll certainly feel like him/her behind the microphone. Take home a copy of the disc and show your friends and family how (un)talented you are. The Ultimate Event Nashville can help you book your demo!
