The event: Made South Market—September 11-12
Love shopping and all things Southern? Well, the Made South Market is the event for you! This two-day affair, with a preview night on Friday, takes place at the charming Harlinsdale Farm, just outside of Franklin. You’ll enjoy live music on the Front Porch Music Stage, tasty bites from local restaurants and gorgeous, handmade goods from more than 80 artisans and makers. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt programs at Williamson Medical Center. Support a great cause while shopping for one-of-a-kind goodies!

Made South Market is an outdoor event, so plan your attire according to the weather. Jeans and cool sandals are a great option, since you’ll be covering some ground. An easy maxi dress with a jacket is also a solid pick for this type of occasion. Check out these looks from Lizard Thicket Boutique.
The event: Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival—September 26-27
Franklin is thrilled to announce a stellar lineup for this year’s Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, a weekend-long event inspired by New Orleans’ wildly popular Jazz Fest. Be prepared to witness performances by big-name artists, including Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Cage The Elephant, Weezer, The Decemberists, St. Paul & The Broken Bones and many more. Also expect to see exciting collaboration unfold on stage between some of these brilliant creatives. The event will also include a bazaar featuring local food and crafts.
