Harvest Festival Welcomes Autumn in Franklin!

The Franklin Downtown Partnership's 16th annual Harvest Festival was the largest one yet! More than 160 vendors offered activities, food, entertainment, giveaways, and more to the thousands of people that flooded downtown!

Thank you to the Harvest Festival Committee, especially Event Chair Scott Martin, as well as the Bernon Family Branch YMCA for running the children's area.

We also very thankful for the help of these FDP members:
  • Beth Simon for managing the volunteers
  • Bryan Taberner, Roberta Trahan, Pandora Carlucci, Kevin Johnson and Beth Wierling for all their help on the planning committee and during the event
Special thanks to Jen Hurst and Dean Bank for running the FDP food tent and to Michael Carroll at Dean Bank for coordinating the Dancing on Dean bands which were a huge addition to the Festival this year.

We are also grateful to:
  • Rockland Trust for the use of its parking lot
  • Intermissions for the use of its patio
  • The Franklin DPW, Police Department and Town Administration for all their support
