BEYOND THE MUSIC: 2023 PILGRIMAGE MUSIC & CULTURAL FESTIVAL DETAILS ALL THE FUN
Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival is 10 Days away! The music and arts festival will return on September 23 & 24 to The Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, TN. The music side of the festival consists of a loaded lineup including The Lumineers, Zach Bryan, The Black Crowes and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. In addition, the arts festival provides tons of eclectic experiences for attendees to choose from beyond the music. Pilgrimage is thrilled to welcome Williamson County-based Tractor Supply Company, who will be bringing their “Backyard” to Harlinsdale Farm. Fans can beat the heat and grab a limited-edition cooling bandana, relax under extra-large umbrellas, or enjoy a cool treat made with locally sourced ingredients from Padrino’s Pops. Between sets, festivalgoers can enjoy music from a Tractor Supply Company Emerging Artist Program winner Hailey Verhaalen and Tractor Supply Company Team Member Emerging Artist Graham Bramblett or grab a guitar and join them for “Pickin’ on the Porch.” The Franklin Fun Farm will be hosting more family-friendly activities for kids of all ages, from performances and crafts to gaming and mixing music. Parents and caretakers can take a break with their little ones in the Mother’s Retreat, courtesy of Vanderbilt Health. The revamped area will feature changing tables, rocking chairs, fans to cool down, and a toddler play area.
