Art Scene returns to Downtown Franklin, Tennessee this week!

The Local Scene for February 27 - March 6, 2017


You don't have to go all the way to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras - look no further than Cajun Steamer's Fat Tuesday Celebration and Kimbro's Pickin' Parlor's Fat Tuesday Bash! And if you can't wait to get your cajun food fix, check out YATS in Cool Springs.

If you're looking for some music this week, we've got plenty of it. In fact, there's live music every night of the week here in Franklin, Tennessee. And if you're a musician yourself, you have to check out The Movie Gang's premier of Colin Hay: Waiting for My Real Life. The story of Colin Hay is incredibly inspirational! 

Oh, and did we mention the official launch of the Franklin Coloring Book is this Friday? Don't miss the party at the Visitor Center this Friday from 6-9PM during Art Scene. We'll have coloring pages, live music, and cake! Can't wait to grab a coloring book? Pre-order yours now exclusively in our online store.
