Our next event is coming up soon!! TN Events in conjunction with the Sister Cities of Franklin and Williamson County present the
Celebration of Nations Festival
in Historic Downtown Franklin, TN
This is the 8th annual “Celebration of Nations Festival”. The Sister Cities’ goal for the Celebration of Nations is to create a passion for global diversity and understanding of traditional arts, foods and sensory experiences of various immigrant cultures. This festival is a unique experience for citizens of the surrounding community to learn more about our neighbors both here and abroad. This event happens in Historic downtown Franklin and includes 2 stages of international entertainment, international beer and wine station, and multiple craft and food vendors. The Main stage will be on 4th Avenue South. Food and craft booths will be located on 4th Avenue South, and the alley that connects to the downtown square. The 2nd Stage will be at the end of the alley in front of the old court house. There will also be booths in the quadrant on the square directly in front of the 2nd stage. (This is the quadrant of the square where the Mellow Mushroom is located.) There is no admission for this event, so, come on down!
The event begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 9:00 p.m..

ATTENTION CRAFT & FOOD VENDORS
Are you a skilled crafter that is looking to show off your product and make some money? TN Events is currently seeking artists and craftspeople that create original work for several festivals in middle Tennessee festivals throughout the year. All work must be original in design and executed by the applicant. No flea market items will be accepted. Items may be rejected if they appear to be mass-produced. TN Events reserves the right to limit the number of vendors in any given category. For more information and to fill out an online application please click on the non food vendor tab here, or above. Acceptance to a previous festival is no guarantee of acceptance at future festivals. Booth spaces measure 10 feet deep from the curb into the street and 10 feet wide. If your merchandise will not fit into this space you must purchase an additional space. Each merchant must supply a weighted, freestanding tent of any color. Tents must be weighted and cannot be staked into the pavement. We recommend 40 lbs. per tent leg. (If you are located on a grass location staking is allowed) We will do our best to accommodate requests for particular booth spaces, but cannot guarantee them from year to year. Electricity is available at certain locations at $75 per 110 hookup. You must bring your own outdoor-rated extension cord. Generators are not permitted. No more than 10 amps per circuit will be available.
We encourage you to send us photos and information about yourself and your work for use in our publicity and on our web site. We reserve the right to use entry photos for promotion unless you request otherwise.
Applicants will receive notice of acceptance or non-acceptance via email. Booth fees will be payable after notice of acceptance.
