Without transcendent classical music, Nashville's top cultural event would be a polka band performing a 58-minute "Yakety Sax" jam session instead of today's Groupon to the Nashville Symphony. For $30, you get one ticket to see Thibaudet Returns at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Concerts take place on Thursday, April 1, at 7 p.m. and April 2 and 3 at 8 p.m. All seating is in the $75 orchestra level.

Even though it opened in 2006, Schermerhorn Symphony Center looks like it's been a part of the landscape for centuries. That's because the center, which is named for Nashville Symphony's late maestro Kenneth Schermerhorn, took its design cues from famed European concert halls. Its classic appearance is enhanced by 30 soundproof windows, which allow natural sunlight or unnatural spaceship lights to stream in. A custom-built organ rings out through the hall, and a convertible seating design allows the hall to morph into a ballroom floor for cabaret shows or weddings.

The Redneck Comedy Bus Tour delivers a two-hour dose of Southern-tinged humor aboard a refashioned camouflaged school bus. Decked out in their respective getups of denim overalls and fluorescent cake makeup, hosts Tater and Erlene corral their fearless chortle trippers at either the World Famous Nashville Palace (Mondays–Thursdays and Saturdays at 11 a.m.) or the Whiskey Bent Saloon (Mondays and Saturdays at 2 p.m.). Passengers learn about the haunts of Nashville's overabundant country stars and local yokels directly from the denizens themselves, who speak in their native hillbilly pidgin. Coolers the size of tackle boxes containing six-packs are welcome, and tourists are encouraged to bring their own canned alcohol, beef jerky, pork rinds, or vegan bubble gum. After proving proficiency on the subject of goo goos and moon pies, riders are deemed redneck certified and should possess a newfound ability to recite poems about NASCAR.

With the exception of four years during World War II, the Tennessee State Fair has kept the family-friendly party going ever since 1906. Classic fair foods such as cotton candy, corn dogs, and snow cones fuel visitors as they stop in on the prize-seeking animals, tap their toes to live music, and belt tunes at the karaoke showdown. While smaller kids ride the merry-go-round and explore the Tomb of Doom, their older siblings can get their thrills on rides with spine-tingling names such as the Mega Drop and the Fireball. And parents can learn all about Tennessee's small-time brewing operations and distilleries at local drink-making showcases.
