5 Things We Love About Pilgrimage

Along with the Windy City Smokeout in Chicago, Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in Franklin, TN, is one of Outsider’s favorite festivals to attend.

Here are 5 reasons we absolutely love the event.

  • Pilgrimage is family friendly, so bring the kids to enjoy the music and fall weather
  • Lots of room to explore or relax on the 200-acre farm, you can sidle up to your favorite stage or spread a blanket
  • Diverse lineup features the best of country, Americana, bluegrass, R&B, rock, and more
  • More than a dozen food trucks, and 30 craft beers on tap at the Craft Beer Hall
  • Yep, this is during football season (college and NFL), but there are plenty of TVs throughout the festival to catch your must-see game
