Franklin-Simpson Renaissance in collaboration with partners Simpson County Tourism and The Gallery on the Square is hosting a new festival this fall.

Summer Vibes Music Fest is happening Saturday, Aug. 28, 2021 the day after the annual Summer Nights Concerts Series ends on Franklin’s downtown square. The festival is aimed toward a younger demographic to add a different element to the community.

“This idea came from the Solar Eclipse event a few years ago,” Franklin-Simpson Renaissance Director Kim Roberts said. “Everyone seemed to enjoy an afternoon of music and food. I thought it would be a nice event to bring new faces to our downtown while giving familiar faces an afternoon of fun. The merchants will be holding special sales and promotions that weekend to be involved with the festival.”

The free one-day festival includes live music featuring a lineup of seven regional bands performing on two stages, art vendors, “selfie” stations, food trucks, specialty drink stations and activities related to the theme of the event. Summer Vibes Music Fest is announcing the bands to perform in an announcement via social media channels on May 1.
