Historic Downtown Franklin, TN


Join us in downtown Frankin, TN on October 12 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. for Sister Cities of Franklin and Williamson County’s *FREE* “Celebration of Nations” cultural festival.  The mission of the Celebration of Nations is to create global and cultural passion, beginning with a personal knowledge and understanding of the interconnections of people universally.  We believe one way to accomplish this goal is through genuine artistic and sensory representations of various nations.  This unique affair will consist of booths featuring different products and techniques used around the world.  Craft vendor booths will be displaying and selling art, clothing, etc from a variety of different countries and cultures.  Food and beverage vendors from a variety of nations will also be available. Stages featuring music and dance acts from around the globe will be seen and heard throughout the day. 

New to the event this year is an evening international themed street concert featuring the music of local cover band favorite, Rubiks Groove! Rubiks Groove will be playing a set full of some of their favorite “internationally themed” songs from the 80s and 90s. Also new this year is the Lipman Brothers V.I.P. International Beer and Wine Tasting tent. We will be serving dozens of international beers and wine from all around the world guided by experts who know them best. Tastings and a souvenir glass will be included in the V.I.P admission price.

Both the daytime and evening events will take place on 4th Avenue South (in front of the parking garage) and the connecting alley from 4th Avenue to the Historic Williamson County Courthouse.
