Fan Fair 2002 June 13 - 16

The Country Music Store
10th Anniversary Country Music Tour
to Dollywood, Memphis and Nashville for Fan Fair

Fan Fair 

Our first Tour to Fan Fair with our group was back in 1993, so now, with hundreds of satisfied travellers were confident that weve again created the best value Country Music Tour for fans and travellers alike.  Unique experiences, in comfortable and knowledgeable security, with experienced people and our many return travellers are a sure sign weve got it right for you.

Updated 27th March 2002...     Big Price reduction now to just $5750 twin share

With a reduced number of travellers this year, we've made a number of late changes to the itinerary, so please have a look through the amended details below and especially at the new price and if you're interested for June 2002, don't hesitate, get in touch as our room allocations are now shrinking fast.

Again this year, many changes have been made to Fan Fair following the recent upgrades, with new dates, new venues, new schedules, extra autograph times and weve abbreviated the trip to cover just Tennessee, but your special additional touring can be arranged without difficulty. We   have been very late with our final details for this year's trip, with the changed conditions in the USA and as a result we'll be travelling with fewer people than normal. So this year only, we're back to the old Fan Fare Express itinerary, but with a greatly reduced price by over $1000.

You can click on the links embedded in the itinerary below to see the itinerary live!

So come along and join the happiest mob of Aussies in Tennessee, Call now to reserve you seat 07 3221 3000, or drop us a line.    Please get in touch if you have any questions at all that we answer for you at any time.

Tuesday June 11 - Day 2
Departing in the morning flying direct to Nashville, with transfers included to our hotel, the Maxwell House, arriving in the early afternoon where we will likely meet up with the gracious "Miss Bill" Hunt, our local guide for the last 10 years. The evening is at leisure to check out the honky tonks on Broadway and 2nd Avenue, or attend the IFCO all star concert or catch a band at the Bluegrass Inn or Roberts Western Wear or even Miss Tootsies. Or maybe go to a fan club party, eh Naomi?


Wednesday June 12 - Day 3
There's a day trip arranged to Memphis Tennessee, to visit Elvis Presleys home, Graceland (platinum admission ticket included to Mansion and Car & Plane museums). Some folks have asked if they can still visit with Jack, and we'll arrange a special trip to tour the world famous Jack Daniel's Distillery, which has been a favourite with travellers on the tour ever since we added it in 1995.

Tonight, we return to Nashville to rest up for the big weekend ahead...
Fan Fair starts tomorrow!
Miss Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Broadway

There's lots to see and do in Nashville outside of Fan Fair from the Historic 2nd Avenue nightclub district where the Wild Horse Saloon is, one block over is the Ryman Auditorium, and a block further on to Tootsie's, Wolfies, The Bluegrass Inn and Broadway honkytonks and just down the street is the all new Country Music Hall of Fame  opened in May of 2001 and it's even easy to sneak back to the hotel for a refreshing nap when needs be.  We're really in the thick of it here.
