The Heritage Foundation will hold its 37th annual Main Street Festival on July 17-18 in response to health and government safety updates based on the COVID-19 pandemic, announced Heritage Foundation CEO Bari Beasley.
The festival was previously scheduled for April 24-25.
“We realize the economic and community impact the Heritage Foundation signature festivals have on downtown Franklin and Williamson County which we serve, and we remain committed to host all three of our major festivals and the beloved Heritage Ball in 2021. After careful deliberation, we felt confident that moving the Main Street Festival from April to July will allow more opportunity for a safer public gathering which is our primary concern for the community,” Beasley said.
Confirmed 2021 festival and event dates are as follows:
• 37th annual Main Street Festival, July 17-18, 2021
• 47th annual Heritage Ball, Oct. 2, 2021
• 36th annual Pumpkinfest, Oct. 30, 2021
• 36th annual Dickens of a Christmas, Dec. 11-12, 2021
