Pilgrimage Festival Offers More Than Music

The Pilgrimage Festival boasts a great lineup this year. However, that’s only the beginning. There’s plenty more to see.

For instance, there’s the Americana Music Triangle Experience. Pilgrimage organizers have brought together representatives from three of the South’s more historic musical cities. They’ll tell stories and educate festivalgoers on the rich history of American music.

The Makers Village will host a wide range of Southern artists. Jewelers, tinkerers, craftsmen, and more will have their items up for sale. According to the Pilgrimage Festival website, “The Makers Village allows the festivalgoer to slow down and enjoy an authentic taste of Southern culture.”

There will also be plenty to eat. The festival will host Farm to Turntable, a gathering of some of the best food trucks in Nashville and Franklin. Additionally, Pilgrimage Festival’s Culinary Program brings more than 40 local and regional restaurants to The Farm. They’ll offer “everything from oyster po’ boys, wood-fired pizza, and Thai rice bowls to specialty coffees, juice bars, and smoothie counters.”

There will also be a craft beer hall and a stage just for the little ones. Truly, this festival is offering a little something for everyone with a dash of Southern hospitality.
