Nashville between Christmas and New Years

We are trying to plan a quick trip Dec 26-29. It seems like the Ryman is closed the 26-28 as no shows are listed and other places/venues either are not open or haven't booked any acts during that time. We are planning on staying at the Renaissance and are open to a lot of different types of music and adventure. Will we find enough fun/music/adventures during this time for the things we want/need to do? Have a family of 5...kids, 26,25,20.

Just because there are no venues with scheduled shows, doesn't mean nothing is happening. The honky tonks on Broadway, will be open with plenty of live music.

There will be a couple of events open to the public related to the Music City Bowl from about 5:00 - 8:00 on Thursday, the 28th. The Battle of the Bands is the bigger event taking place, so if you enjoy watching / hearing college marching bands perform, this is a great option.

The Ryman is open on your dates for self-guided tours during the daytime. Robert Earl Keen has a Christmas-themed show the night of Dec 28th, though I'm not sure it would be appropriate for all ages in your party. https:/…

There's a section on the right side of this page (not visible on most mobile devices) called "Top Questions About Nashville". The 4th one from the bottom is about kid-friendly activities. Take a look at that and see if the suggestions in those threads would interest your group.
