The Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival returns for its fifth year on September 21st and 22nd at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm, located in Franklin. With a talented lineup, including performances from ground-breaking artists like the Foo Fighters, Keith Urban, The Killers and many more, along with the incredible artisan, food and drink vendors - there will be something for the entire family. The festival has long been known as the site of some of the year’s most unforgettable music performances and food experiences and, this year, Pilgrimage will bring even more for the two-day event.

Located in the Vanderbilt Health Lil Pilgrims Village, the Mare Barn Theater is just one of the many family-friendly activations that will take place upon the grounds of the festival, offering music fans of all ages the ultimate entertainment via performers such as magicians Michael Dardant and Cousin Cajun Mike, as well as the exciting DrumINSync drum circle. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will be on hand to conduct a story time session along with a songwriting workshop, and School of Rock will host a musical petting zoo.

Festival-goers of all ages will have the opportunity to learn more about the South’s rich musical history with the help of American Pickers and Antique Archaeology at the Americana Music Triangle Experience. The partners have cultivated an atmosphere of American Music culture with church pews, farm tables and a historic photo wall to serve as a backdrop while stories from other historic southern music cities are shared.

In addition to the music, artisans, food and activities, there are the drinks. The Bell’s Brewery
Craft Beer Hall returns for a third year, with over fifteen brews on draft and LED screens featuring NCAA and NFL programming all weekend long. The expanded Millville Wine Lounge will feature a collection of wines, including selections from ViNO and JaM Cellars. The festival’s mixology experience continues to be refined with the support of Pilgrimage’s spirits’ partners, including Blue Chair Bay, George Dickel Tennessee Whisky, Hendrick’s Gin, Milagro Tequila and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. New for 2019, the event welcomes Miller Lite, Henry’s Hard Sparkling Water, Red Bull and Topo Chico Sparkling Mineral Water.
