With the Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival kicking off in Franklin, TN, this weekend, we’re urging our customers to avoid traffic and arrive early this Saturday, September 26, 2015. This festival is predicted to draw over 30,000 people to Franklin over the weekend, and we don’t want our shoppers inconvenienced by the vehicular overflow. So go ahead and arrive early this Saturday for prompt market perusing! You’ll find hot hand-poured coffee, fresh donuts, fluffy biscuits, crepes, and even King Farm’s great-big pumpkin truck overflowing with an incomparable pumpkin selection to greet you.
Our little town certainly will be bustling this Saturday, no doubt about it! The Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival lineup includes big names in music such as Wilco, Willie Nelson, and Sheryl Crow, and is estimated to draw more than 30,000 people to Harlinsdale Farm—less than a quarter-mile from the Franklin Farmers Market! With such high attendance and festival gates set to open at 10am Saturday morning, our roads could easily become a bit congested. Therefore, avoid any uncomfortable vehicular gridlocks and arrive early this Saturday to market.
Parking is another important topic this week! The Factory parking lot will be leased for this weekend’s Pilgrimage Festival beginning at 1:30pm this Saturday September 26, 2015. Any cars left in the Factory parking lot after 1:30pm on Saturday September 26, 2015, will be towed. This means that our market shoppers cannot park at the Factory and walk to the Pilgrimage Festival, and that all cars must be removed from our parking lot no later than 1:30pm. So avoid towing and traffic, arrive early this Saturday, grab a cup of Joe and a donut, and get busy picking out a jack-o-lantern pumpkin at the Franklin Farmers Market.
