Pilgrimage Festival 2020

While Pilgrimage has been canceled for 2020, we look forward to seeing you again in Franklin! In the meantime, it's never too early to start planning next year's trip. 

Here, you'll find a mix of Southern charm and unmatched hospitality. From independently-owned restaurants and shops to Civil War history and local spirits, you'll be wowed by the variety of activities Franklin has to offer. Are you craving more live music before and after the festival? We've got plenty of that too. You'll see why Matador Network named us one of the "25 Coolest Towns in America," and Garden & Gun gave us the title of "Best Southern Town."
