Since 2015, for two days each September Franklin, Tennessee, comes alive with art and music. Held at historic Harlinsdale Farm at Franklin's Park, Pilgrimage is a music festival that brings together some of the best local and national artists, great regional food and drinks, and a fantastic festive atmosphere that attracts thousands from all over Tennessee and other states. The festival is the brain child of Franklin resident musician Kevin Griffin, who fell in love with Harlinsdale Farm’s scenic beauty, rolling hills, and natural amphitheater. He saw it as a perfect venue for a music festival, a cultural event that will do justice to the area’s incredible beauty. Since then, the festival has hosted such great names as Lionel Richie, Chris Stapleton, Jack White, and many others. The diverse lineup includes rock & roll, alt-country, Americana, bluegrass, indie, jazz, gospel, pop, and blues. The festival has grown in the first three years to six stages and more than 60 musicians. For tickets, visit pilgrimagefestival.com/tickets.
