This year’s Pilgrimage Fest is set for Sept. 22 and Sept. 23 at The Park at Harlinsdale in Franklin. This is our favorite local festival and for great reason. It’s family friendly, they care about the environment and the lineup is always solid. It’s a can’t miss event year after year. [Another bonus is you can bring your own empty water bottle and fill it throughout the day at their filling stations!]
The 2018 lineup is stacked and Stapleton, White, Lionel Richie and Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds are the festival’s big headliners. Other standouts include Hozier, Counting Crows, Amos Lee, Bleachers, Mat Kearney and Kevin Griffin. That’s just to name a few. Check out the full lineup at Pilgrimage’s website. The daily lineup is also live now.
Another impressive part of this local fest is the local food and vendors. Some of our favorite eats at the festival include The Banh Mi & Roll Factory, Degthaitruck, Franklin Juice Co, Funk Seoul Brother and Island Noodles. Island Noodles is a hit year after year so line up for them before you get hungry. You can’t go wrong with any of their fresh noodle dishes — and they’re super easy to eat even without a table.
The NASH Collection will be on hand at Pilgrimage this year as will Humble Bumble Beads, Jack Rudy Cocktail Co and our pals Project 615. Check out these vendors during the day when you want to stretch your legs and relax in between sets. You’ll probably find your new favorite local vendor there.
There are a variety of ticket options but they have already sold out of the two-day level two general admission pass. You can buy general admission, VIP or even the grand champion experience. There’s also a parking pass for the weekend. See ticket options here. Whatever you choose, grab your tickets before they sell out.
Can’t wait to see you Make the Pilgrimage!
