The City of Franklin announced that Harlinsdale Farm is currently closed for repairs due to significant rain and flooding over the last week.

“Due to significant rain and flooding over a period of six days during and after the Pilgrimage Festival, producers asked for an extension in breaking down their equipment and vacating the Park at Harlinsdale farm. The City granted an extension until October 5th,” according to a statement from the City of Franklin.

Pilgrimage Festival ended abruptly on Saturday, Sept. 22 and was also canceled on Sunday, Sept. 23 due to significant rainfall.

“In early evaluation of the farm grounds, the City will require the closure of the park until repairs can be completed to make the park safe for all visitors,” reads the statement.

The dog park is expected to re-open in mid October and the city hopes to have the park re-opened for scheduled events at the end of October.

City of Franklin confirmed that they will be working with Pilgrimage Music Festival and their insurance to cover the cost of repairs.

A few events have been affected by the closure. The Franklin Academy polo match (Franklin vs. Nashville) was to take place on Saturday, October 6; this event has been canceled. Unite Williamson was to hold its inaugural event at Harlinsdale Farm on October 20 but changed its location to Eastern Flank Battlefield as of earlier this week.

Currently, the Poloween event on October 28th is still on the schedule.

Keep checking back for more updates as to when the park will be reopened.
