Nothing can match the thrill of seeing a concert in person, not even watching it on high-definition Blu-ray or listening to it on a high-definition parrot. Get out of your cage with this GrouponLive deal to see the Festival of Nations 2013 at Akron Civic Theatre. For $13, you get two adult tickets and two children's tickets for general-admission seating on Saturday, February 2, at 7 p.m. (up to a $30 value). Doors open at 6 p.m. Children's tickets are valid for ages 3–12; children younger than 2 are free.
Celebrating the cultural and ethnic diversity of Ohio, the Festival of Nations 2013 presents an artistic smorgasbord of global music and dance. Aural and visual spectacles include the hypnotic West African drumming of Tam Tam Magic, the lockstep marching and martial bagpipes of the Celtic Eagle Pipe Band, and the elegant moves of the Shri Kalaa Mandir Center for Indian Performing Arts dancers. Educational booths let visitors learn more about the cultures behind the performances, and international refreshments offer new flavors and delectable new food-fight projectiles.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
