Via Instagram for Pilgrimage Festival, a fan commented, “We are actually in town this weekend since we had reservations for the fest and decided to come anyway since we love Franklin. We went to the factory farmers market and walked over to the farm yesterday. Bittersweet for sure but enjoying Franklin and supporting this wonderful town. This is the BEST surprise. Booking this house today for 2021!!!”
The festival also announced a special vintage merchandise sale on the website for a limited time with net proceeds to benefit MusiCares®.
