Great Americana BBQ Festival
This year's Great Americana BBQ Festival is back and benefitting Franklin Noon Rotary Charitable Foundation! On August 27th and 28th, the air in Franklin, Tennessee will be filled with the sweet aroma of hickory smoke and simmering sauce at Harlinsdale Farm.
Visitors will enjoy some of the most finger licking good barbecue around, prepared by professional pit masters and iron chefs from across the country.
The BBQ festival is hosted by The Franklin BBQ Society and The Franklin Noon Rotary Club (FNRC). The FNRC has dedicated over seven decades of service to its community and has distributed over three million dollars to local charities.
