parking-mapThe Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival is scheduled for September 24-25 at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm. The family-friendly event will have a diverse mix of music; food and merchant vendors; and a children’s entertainment stage and play area.

Festival organizers have worked with the City’s Police Department and Traffic Engineers to create the best traffic flow possible, while leaving residential and business access open.

During both days of the festival:

  • Southbound traffic only will be permitted from Harpeth Industrial Court to First Avenue;
  • The northbound lane will be reserved for pedestrians, bicycles, and festival shuttle service;
  • Two-way traffic flow will remain from Harpeth Industrial Court to Mack Hatcher;
  • The roadway will open to regular travel patterns Sunday night at approximately 10 p.m.

Franklin Police Officers will direct traffic along Franklin Road and will assist residents who need to exit or enter their driveways or affected streets. The festival will run from 10 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. on both days and is anticipated to attract up to 12,000 residents and visitors per day. For information on the festival, visit PilgrimageFestival.com
