Home > Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival

Welcome to #FranklinTN!

We are thrilled that you have decided to make the Pilgrimage and we can't wait to welcome you to Franklin, Tennessee this September!

Here, you'll find a mix of Southern charm and big ambitions. We hope you have the ability to see all that Williamson County has to offer during your stay, from our variety of independently-owned restaurants and shops to Civil War history and local spirits. Craving more live music before and after the festival? We've got plenty of that too. You'll see why TripAdvisor named us one of the "Top 30 Cities to Visit in 2018," and Garden & Gun gave us the title of "Best Southern Town."
