The Main Street Festival also features more than 200 artisans & crafters, three stages, two carnivals and an international food court to round out a full weekend of entertainment. Presented by First Tennessee and produced by the Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County and the Downtown Franklin Association, the weekend event is expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors to a full slate of family-oriented activities, non-stop musical entertainment and international flavors of more than 20 food vendors.
Handmade work to be exhibited includes original oil and watercolor paintings, pottery, jewelry, furniture, woodworking, ornamental iron, stained glass, photography, home and garden accents, birdhouses, leatherwork, and much more. In addition to a juried arts and crafts show, the festival offers a special area of children's activities on Third Avenue South between City Hall and the Old Courthouse.

There will also be a full-scale, traditional carnival at North Margin Street and Second Avenue North--the site of the future City of Franklin Bicentennial Park. The carnival opens earlier than the festival on Thursday and goes through Sunday. Thursday nights and all day Sunday are wristband days at the carnival, during which a $20 wristband offers unlimited access to the rides.
