Harvest Festival Registration is Open

If you are a Franklin Downtown Partnership member and have paid your 2021 membership, you can receive a free booth space. Non-members of the FDP will pay $125, with the exception of food vendors.

Booth spaces are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and we expect to sell out of booth spaces this year.

Businesses on Main Street need to contact the FDP office if they plan to participate so committee members can reserve their space. Remember: ALL businesses and restaurants need to register online in order to secure a space.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: If you would like to volunteer to help with this event, please contact the FDP office.

SPONSORS NEEDED: If you would like to be a sponsor of the Harvest Festival, please contact the FDP office.
