This weekend is chock full of events, especially in one specific area of Franklin Road where Harlinsdale Farm and The Factory are. A music festival, designer sale and more could cause traffic congestion while other events may back up traffic in other parts of the county. See what’s going on this weekend so you can avoid an unwanted traffic jam.
1. Pilgrimage Festival
Perhaps the most anticipated musical event in Williamson County is taking place this weekend. Pilgrimage Festival is a two-day music festival event that will take place at Harlinsdale Farm on September 25-26th in Franklin. Due to the thousands of expected patrons, traffic will be an issue. Festival organizers have worked extensively with the City’s Police Department, Emergency Management, and Traffic Engineers to create the best traffic flow possible, while leaving residential and business access open. Read about Traffic pattern changes for the festival here. And don’t forget to check our Traffic Page for updates throughout the weekend.
Purchase your tickets to this incredible event. Performing artists include Willie Nelson, Steven Tyler, Wilco, Will Hoge, Weezer, Cage the Elephant and many more!
Across the street from Harlinsdale Farm at The Factory, lots of events are taking place.
