Main Street’s Brewfest, the Downtown Franklin Festival all about beer, will take place on Saturday, March 11.

The annual event, produced by the Downtown Franklin Association (DFA) and presented by Lipman Brothers, serves as a fundraiser for the continued revitalization and promotion of historic Downtown Franklin.

From 5 to 8 p.m., Brewfest will boast over 80 local, national and international beers across 35 tasting locations, from established and new breweries.

Julie Walton Garland of Walton’s Antique and Estate Jewelry will serve as chair of the event, leading a committee of dedicated volunteers who produce the festival each year.

In addition, she has worked with the City of Franklin over the past year on the implementation of a Public Arts Program for Franklin.
