Franklin’s 28th annual Main Street Festival is this weekend! Four stages of live entertainment, three international festival food courts featuring more than 20 vendors, and over 200 arts and crafts booths will be set up in historic downtown Franklin.
The street festival will be Saturday and Sunday, but other activities surround the arts and crafts booths and extend the event to include today and tomorrow as well! Thursday through Sunday, a full-scale, traditional carnival will be open at North Margin Street and Second Avenue North. Those festivalgoers who are over 21 years of age can stay after hours on Saturday to take part in the Fourth Avenue Street Dance, an outdoor party with soundtrack provided by The Fabulous Suedes, continuing until 10 pm.
This year’s festival brings a special event, the “Come Together” exhibit presented by Yoko Ono featuring more than 100 works of art by former Beatle John Lennon. The exhibit will be located in the Gray’s Building at 332 Main Street, open Thursday through Sunday, and you can view the art for just a $2 donation to Second Harvest food bank. The rest of the festival is free, and is expected to draw crowds of over 100,000 people!
