Wine Down Main Street Returns for its 20th Anniversary

On Saturday, November 6, from 7 to 10 p.m., downtown Franklin comes alive with Wine Down Main Street, a unique wine tasting event that takes place along Historic Main Street in Franklin, Tennessee. Voted Best Charity Event in the Williamson’s Best Awards, it’s considered one of the best nights out all year: the streets are closed to traffic; wines, beers, and spirits, provided by Lipman Brothers, are poured in the shops; food samplings are provided by area restaurants, and local musicians entertain you along the way.

Wine Down Main Street benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee and has raised more than $2,158,167 since its inception in support of youth ages 5 – 18 years old.

Specially priced e-tickets are $75 per person until Sunday, October 11, and $85 per person after that. VIP tickets are $125 per person and include access to the Historic Franklin Theatre with signature cocktails as well as select Lipman Bros. wines, along with choice food selections, and the soulful sounds of Elecoustic Soul. Premium VIP tickets may also be purchased for $200 and include a gift bag of items such as gift certificates, wine, and jewelry. Both VIP and Premium VIP tickets are limited. Advance tickets may be purchased at or

Tickets may also be purchased at Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee’s Club Support Center located at 1704 Charlotte Avenue, Suite 200, in Nashville or at the Franklin Boys & Girls Club located at 129 West Fowlkes Street, Suite 1000, in Franklin.
