Main Street Festivals

Bringing Community and Cultural Heritage to Downtown Franklin for More Than 30 Years

Heritage Foundation Signature Festivals Hosted by Downtown Franklin Association

Beginning as a way to revitalize cherished small businesses more than 30 years ago, these signature festivals continue to serve our mission and foster economic vitality for local shops and visiting vendors, while creating beloved community events that enrich and preserve the historic charm and enduring spirit of our town.

From fine art, to fall festivities and a themed Victorian, holiday event unlike any other – there is something for every resident and visitor attending these anticipated, annual events. Collectively, our Main Street Festival, Pumpkinfest and Dickens of a Christmas draw more than 250,000 attendees over the course of a year. We encourage you to come and take a day (or two or three) to enjoy all Franklin and Williamson County have to offer!
