What’s New at Main Street Festival

Thousands of families converge on Franklin's downtown area for the biggest and busiest Main Street Festival!

It’s a day full of shopping, live music and family fun during The Heritage Foundation of Williamson County’s 36th Annual Main Street Festival. It takes place April 27 – 28 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. It’s one of the of the largest events in the Southeast, expecting a crowd of nearly 100,000 for a fun-filled weekend featuring music, arts and crafts, food and children’s activities.

Music on the main stage plays all day while you encounter more than 200 unique arts and crafts vendors.

Give the kids a break from all the parent stuff and let ‘em have fun with all the children’s activities including train rides, face painting, trampolines, a recording booth, bungee rides and more.

Take advantage of Franklin Transit’s shuttle services to and from the festival. Shuttle rides are $1 per person each way and will be available both days.
