2017 event sponsorships available

As we begin our planning for 2017 we want to thank our wonderful past sponsors. We are fortunate to have the Franklin community's support year after year, and without it we would not be able to continue our many events like the Strawberry Stroll, Harvest Festival and Holiday Stroll. And, of course, Beautification!

This year we are having the Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 14th, with a rain date of the 15th.  This will be the largest event in Franklin and we are hoping to attract more than 8,000 visitors.  We hope you will consider sponsoring this popular festival or one of our other signature events.

If you want to sponsor our events, please let us know so we can plan accordingly. Here are our Sponsorship Opportunities sheet and the Sponsorship Registration Form.  
Please contact the FDP office at if you have questions.  We would be happy to meet with you to talk about sponsorship opportunities.
Thank you again for your continued support!

Save the Date: May 21 FDP Progressive Dinner

Downtown Progressive Dinner to be May 21

The Franklin Downtown Partnership is planning a Progressive Dinner for Sunday, May 21, beginning at 5 p.m.  Building upon the success of the organization’s first two dinner events, the FDP is looking forward to an evening celebrating downtown Franklin and its eateries.

Diners will begin their culinary tour of the downtown with a soup or salad at one restaurant, and then stroll down the street to a second restaurant to sample an appetizer selection. Groups will then move to a third restaurant to enjoy an entrée, dessert, a silent auction and raffle and some excellent local entertainment.

The Partnership is currently looking for sponsors of the Progressive Dinner. Gold sponsorship is $300, Silver sponsorship is $200 and Bronze sponsorship is $100. Businesses or groups interested in backing the event should contact the FDP office at

Tickets for this event will go on sale in April and organizers will announce the details on the FDP website,, and on Facebook and Twitter. Contact event organizer Jane Curran at for more information.
