Downtown Franklin Sets Tree Lighting Date

The Downtown Franklin Square will be the site of the annual Franklin tree lighting on Dec 1 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

The City is partnering with sponsors Williamson Medical Center, Middle Tennessee Electric, Mars Petcare, Downtown Franklin Association and Spring Tree Media group to bring a multi-media extravaganza to the historic downtown square.

The event features children’s choirs from local middle schools and high schools.

Downtown shops along Main Street will be open late and feature holiday-inspired windows and décor.  Traveling musicians will entertain the crowds leading up to the main event.

Last year close to 4,000 people attended.

The City Communications team will stream the festivities live from Facebook at For more information on this event go to
