On Saturday, November 3, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. downtown Franklin comes alive with Wine Down Main Street, a unique wine tasting event that takes place along Historic Main Street in Franklin, Tennessee. Voted the number one Fundraiser/Charity Event for the tenth straight year in the Sizzle Awards, it’s the best night out all year: the streets are closed to traffic; wines, beers and spirits, provided by Lipman Brothers, are poured in the shops; food samplings are provided by area restaurants; and local musicians entertain you along the way.
Wine Down Main Street benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee, Franklin and Fairview Clubs, and has raised more than $1,859,737 since its inception in support of youth ages 5 – 18 years old.
Specially priced e-tickets are $75 per person until October 14, and $85 per person after that. VIP tickets are $125 per person and include admission to the VIP lounge (location TBA) with open bar, hors d’oeuvres and live music. Premium VIP tickets may also be purchased for $200 and include a gift bag of items such as gift certificates, wine, and jewelry. Both VIP and Premium VIP tickets are limited.
